Look at GoDaddy, they were the one of the companies that were helping put the legislation together for SOPA, now their scrambling saying their maintaining a neutral stance after everyone started collectively changing domains

Just donated $20 to wikipedia.

Wikipedia got me through a lot of schooling. Figured it was the least I could do.

I showed my support by donating twenty dollars to wikipedia, signing the petition, and reposting the information to the one other forum I'm active on. I encourage everyone to do at least the later two things I've done, themselves.

^ sadly, many big corps are for it. The Apple, Dell, and even the NHL support it.

America is censoring the internet for american citizens.. Why are we worried? yes i realize it could spike a chain reaction for canada to do something but I really doubt it..

The fact of the matter is most of the websites we visit are american, not to mention the domain may be American based. They have a lot of jurisdiction

Do you use any American based websites?

If the answers yes, then you could quite possibly feel some effect.

Aside from that, if the legislation passes, it's not a huge stretch of the imagination to think Harper would import the idea to Canada. Monkey see, monkey do.

I remember reading about this last month and some how I stumbled on a video about it on youtube.
It's getting pretty crazy out there.
