Reddit will enact 'nuclear option' to protest SOPA, PIPA
From 8am to 8pm U.S. Eastern Time on January 18th, one of the most popular sites on the web will suspend its operations, and replace its content with a video stream of a congressional hearing of the bill. Reddit’s co-founder Alexis Ohanian will also be testifying.
Highlights of the article also mention :
Others have considered a synchronised blackout, from Google to PayPal, Twitter and Wikipedia, in a bid to replicate in the effect SOPA could have on the web and its users.
Following this stuff in the news, I have to ask how SOPA could effect the likes of Wincustomize and Deviantart should someone or anyone decide that Spiderman Wallpapers or World of Warcraft icons are copyright infringements (items we take to be of 'fair use').
What are YOUR thoughts on all of this?
