Social news aggregator Reddit.com took the lead and announced that they were “going black” on January 18th to protest SOPA and PIPA. Despite backpedaling in Congress, the need is greater than ever for people to learn what the bills will mean if passed. Other websites need to follow Reddit’s lead.
Drop the following code in between your two <HEAD></HEAD> tags on your site, your users will be redirected to the blackout page that describes what you are doing and why. Then, when the protest is over, simply remove the added code.
