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.

Microsoft and Yahoo are also against SOPA. If Bing and Yahoo joined in with Google, who would win?

DuckDuckGo, of course.

Without google, bing nor yahoo, how would they find duckduckgo? :-) Not to mention no facebook for people to let the world know there are alternatives... etc..

Another solution would be a 'continue with ... (service)...' after an anti SOPA messages that's the same on all these sites, and then signed by all these sites.

Too bad it could be possibly a field day for scammers and such (especially with all the major sites looking the same, and having "click to go further"), I guess ...ultimately being also used by SOPA supporters.
