Following the news that Reddit, Wikipedia, and a bunch of other sites will be going dark to protest PIPA (and, to a lesser extent, SOPA) tomorrow, Google has now announced that it will use its home page to express its dislike of the bill. Google has not made clear exactly how it will protest. It won't "go dark" like those other sites, but it appears that it will post some sort of link, and will highlight ways for people to contact their elected officials in protest over the bill. With both Google and Wikipedia pushing people to call Congress... you might want to assume that Congress is going to get a few phone calls tomorrow.

i also believe this is a good move..
and i also think other sites like google should do it too.
.... i was having trouble thinking of more websites,,,,but when i really think about it, most of them are probably already owned by people who WANT SOPA approved.
the more (temporary) blackout the better, this needs to be advertised on TV for all the idiot-box watchers to see too

Yet another example of the 1% trying to make law in America.
Anti-privacy to protect billion dollar industry, if i would use a P2P íllegal'' site then its because I am sick and tired of the number of games, music and films that are crap. The number of Albums I have bought when there is only one good song on it, games that last days and films I would rather have the hours of my life added to the end.
If its good, I will buy it, if its not, # them, they deserve the little bit of leakage on behalf of those poor fekrs who paid.
And another thing, if i paid 50 bucks to see a movie at the cinema that i like, why cant i get a disk or code to watch it at home, or should I pay 50 bucks every time and then 50 bucks to buy the dvd.
