After the Blackout: LOIC
Anonymous is bombarding the DoJ, RIAA and Universal Music, and promises have been made that campaign raising abilities of SOPA supporting Democrats will be targeted in the near future. Anonymous has asked that opponents of SOPA not inclined to use LoIC follow #StopSOPA on Twitter and retweet all tweets. (see pic)
This comes on the heels of a unilateral takedown of Megaupload earlier.
Justice dot gov has been down for at least half an hour. Mike Masnick at TechDirt made a very good point earlier today: Democrats may think young people aren't paying attention to this issue, but they are WRONG. If they aren't careful they are going to alienate an entire generation of potential supporters with their asinine authoritarianism, an authoritarianism that is hugely invalid because of the very high level of ignorance among Congressmen concerning the technical aspects of these bills.

We won, for now, but only against SOPA/PIPA. OPEN is next and is very much alive. The fight is just beginning.
The following is another relic:
STOP PIPA (Senate 968) & SOPA (HR 3261)
Imagine a world without Wikipedia, Google, Craigslist, multi-channels [your favorite sites here]...
News Corp, RIAA, MPAA, Nike, Sony, Comcast, VISA & others want to make that world your reality.
80 Members of Congress are in their sway, 30 against, the rest undecided or undeclared.
Please take a minute to tell your Members of Congress you OPPOSE PIPA & SOPA
