Blackout Fever

Rocketradio was blacked out yesterday to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA).  In related news, Katrocket has been blacked out on her sofa all week with cough congestion due to cold or flu. 

If you've been blogging from a pineapple under the sea and would like to learn more about the potential fuckification of the innerwebz, our good friend the Vegetable Assassin has written an excellent post on the subject. If you're a Canadian who's wondering how this proposed US legislation could affect you, check out this CBC article on the equally frightening Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernization Act.

But for now, let's just take a moment to celebrate the spirit of a free internet by stealing sharing someone's "intellectual property".
