I’m running a script on my site that censors all the content in order to bring attention to a law being pushed through congress right now. The SOPA (“Stop Online Piracy Act”) is a terrible piece of legislation that gives broad powers for the courts to take down sites by claims from “infringed” users. If SOPA passes as-is, it could devastate the artistic expression and livelihood of many artists, hackers, and entrepreneurs.

You can protest the SOPA bill and install the blackout code on your site to let your visitors know what they could miss out if SOPA does pass.
Paste this code into your Tumblr themes, website, and more…
