The Yak may be a small site, but we too are very much in agreement with the damage that the bills currently running through the Senate and House can do to the Internet and free speech. We are an Entertainment site for goodness sake! So to honor our Internet comrades in this fight against censorship, we too shall be going dark tomorrow in protest. If you come to our front page tomorrow, you will be automatically re-directed to a site where you can contact your Congressmen and let them know how you feel about these bills. There is strength in numbers and although me may be small, every person counts.
If you are still in the dark about these bills, or think SOPA and PIPA are cool new names for cocktails, here is some reading on what they are, what they can do, and who is for and against them.
Thank you to your continued loyalty to the Yak and we will see you on the other side of the 18th!
