Google is doing something to its face page and Wikipedia is shutting for a day.
If you hate the idea of SOPA, then vote for the candidate who voted against it: Ron Paul.
I take it then Hubpages is going to shut down? Being that I live in Canada I have no vote on this at all. When Hubpages does shut down, since I think this bill passing makes this inevitable? - will have enough days notice to move everything before we have no access?
As internet sites can be disappear, or lose data due to mechanical failures, I think it is a good idea for everyone to keep a backup of their pages. Perhaps each time you publish, or once a fortnight - whichever is easier.
If PIPA and SOPA are passed, then HubPages will be in violation (there are too many copyright infringements within the site, and in the external pages/sites that are linked to). But, I am sure there will also be a time lag for implementation and review (if they are passed).
You can still sign the Avaaz petition: http://www.avaaz.org/en/save_the_intern … _center_b/
