TheOatmeal.com blacked out in protest of SOPA / PIPA - The Oatmeal:

For the next 24 hours I am blacking out TheOatmeal.com in protest of SOPA and PIPA. If one of these bills were to pass, this page is what many sites on the internet would look like.


As someone who creates content for the web, earns a living from it, and has had his content pirated, I do feel that we need better legislation against online piracy.

I do not, however, think that SOPA or PIPA are the legislation we need.

Want to help in the fight against SOPA / PIPA? First, go learn about the bills. After that go contact your elected officials. Wikipedia has a handy-dandy page set up which allows you to locate your state representative.

Hugs and jet skis,
-The Oatmeal

P.S. Please pirate the shit out of this animated GIF.

 

 

Done.
