Internet & Networking So, this one slipped by completely undetected late last year (no, I don't grow tired of saying that). CNet reported that Google, Amazon, Facebook, and similarly large, anti-SOPA companies are mulling over the option of taking their websites off the air to replace them with an anti-SOPA message, asking users to contact their elected officials.

Yet, it still great affects everyone on the Internet. Websites like osnews can be taken down with a simple order from the US DOJ if SOPA passes.

As an american, I've been trying to get the word out on social media, emailed my representatives, pulled most of my business from GoDaddy, etc.

The problem is that many americans don't get what the big deal is with SOPA. They haven't bothered to read anything on it. I'm just not sure how to motivate people to write their congressmen.
