SOPA Blackout 18th January

Edit: Our blackout has ended, but keep spreading the word!

We’ve decided to add CoolMiniOrNot and TGN to the proposed SOPA protest blackout on January the 18th, from 7am GMT to 7pm GMT, which translates to 2am EST to 2pm EST and 11pm PST to 11am PST. For more information, hit http://www.sopastrike.com

In theory we aren’t directly affected, being a wholly owned US corporation on US servers (the proposed act applies only to websites outside of US jurisdiction), and CoolMiniOrNot Inc as publishers could conceivably benefit from anti-piracy laws. While preventing piracy is a laudable aim, we feel that this legislation as proposed goes too far and will have a chilling effect on the Internet as a whole. It just isn’t right, and so we will join the blackout on the 18th to spread this message.

If you agree with our position, please support us and educate those who are not aware. If you do not know what SOPA is, take the time learn about it as  you will be affected, where ever you are in the world.

Funny (and a little sad) video illustrating this after the break.
