Internet Websites Go Dark To Protest SOPA

Today many websites are observing a "blackout" day to call attention to dangerous legislation before Congress which would fundamentally alter the Internet, called the Stop Online Privacy Act or SOPA. Participants include Google, Wikipedia and Boing Boing, among many others.

The White House announced its opposition to the legislation over the weekend.

LGBT blogs are in the mix as well, with Karen Ocamb's LGBT POV, TowleRoad and Bilerico Project participating in the online SOPA  protest.
