502Photos – Travis and Jen (and their families) believe in freedom of speech and expression. Imagine if this website didn’t exist because someone found it a “rogue-site” that could hurt their profits. From wikipedia “SOPA and PIPA put the burden on website owners to police user-contributed material and call for the unnecessary blocking of entire sites. Small sites won’t have sufficient resources to defend themselves. Big media companies may seek to cut off funding sources for their foreign competitors, even if copyright isn’t being infringed. Foreign sites will be blacklisted, which means they won’t show up in major search engines. SOPA and PIPA build a framework for future restrictions and suppression.”
Wikipedia – “Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge”
“For over a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia.”
Mozilla – “We believe in an open web.”
Google – Blocked their logo from their homepage.
