A lot of sites are going dark today to protest SOPA, a bill that would infringe free expression on the internet. The law wouldn't benefit anyone except large entertainment companies who are trying to muscle it through congress. KGB Yardsale is not going dark because I'm not tech saavy enough to know how to make that happen. BUT IF I KNEW HOW TO DO IT I WOULD!

Popular blog Superpunch is putting an interesting spin on the blackout idea by remaining online, but linking to stories from major old media sites instead of posting its usual eclectic mix of art, videos, and news. If SOPA passed, this is the kind of boring crap blogs would have to do to avoid risking copyright infringement and being shut down.
