December 29th, 2011, the group Anonymous whom I support, has issued a warning to Sony as well as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift over their support of SOPA. If you don't know what SOPA is, it is the Stop Online Piracy Act which will severely limit the Internet as you know it today. This joke of an act is been put in motion by the United States Government in a futile attempt to "control piracy". All those who have eyes and have ears know that this is not to protect us from online pirates, illegal downloading, etc but to control the people through the Internet - a domain that the government has no business being in. It is our right to have access to information - not a privilege.
Operation Blackout will commence on January 3rd, 2012.
Here's a link to Anonymous' PasteBin with instruction on what you can do to stop this. Click HERE.
If SOPA is passed, you can do THIS!
