SOPA & PIPA Blackout

As an internet addict, person with more than forty two brain cells and a librarian, I find the proposed PIPA and SOPA bills abhorrent. I'm not even in the US and they've managed to scare me from clear across the world.

There are at least a hundred good, lengthy, expert explanations of why all the various bits of it don't work, so for now I'm just going to link to a few of the major sites that are joining the black out in protest on January 18th, EST (incidentally, LOVE the look of GreenpeaceNZ )
