SOPA protest

Today websites across the virtual land are blacking out to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) up for a vote in the United States that could make it really really really hard for a lot of folks to continue to run websites without getting sued to pieces.

From what I’ve read so far, it sounds like a bad idea, and far too far to go in the name of stopping online piracy due to the negative effects it could have on millions of non-pirates. For the record, I would have blacked out Click Clack Gorilla today in solidarity, but I have no fucking clue how. I am also certain that if I did figure it out, I would never be able to get the site online again. So instead, some information to get you up-to-date on the issue, in case you weren’t already…

(And don’t be fooled German speakers! I did something else and listened to several minutes of this before realizing that this was a case of clever subtitling seeing that Hitler was talking about something else entirely…)

I can tell you how, it takes 30 seconds.
You copy the script you find on this page: into your site’s HTML head (anywhere between and .
That will forward user’s to the sopastrike strike page from 14:00 our time until 2:00 tonight. After that, it’s back to normal, without you having to do anything.

Ehr, sorry, the HTML tags I quoted have disappeared. I should have said between HEAD and /HEAD.
