Edit: Interestingly enough, if you go to Wikipedia (back up), it says that Nintendo originally supported the bill, but then removed their name from the list of supporting companies.

Apple as well. The reason for that was that Nintendo and a bunch of other companies are part of an alliance that support(s/ed) SOPA, so by proxy they did too... until they started getting angry letters and actually found out what SOPA was.

Add: I think the issue with Wikipedia specifically is interesting. They're still blacked out (in the States at least) but there are already blog posts about how to get around the "foreground" image that covers every page. It's the perfect allegory for what SOPA and PIPA would do... and how most people will find a workaround and not give two shits about it.

Rep. Tim Ryan has taken a position against SOPA, and my opinion of Ohio has gone up a point.

Just got words that the popular file sharing site Megaupload.com and all the sister sites were seized by FBI and gone.

There is also a list of sites and even locations across the world that are currently deemed as "notorious" by the US authorities

Besides PirateBay and Megaupload, I've not herd of any of these. Honesty I'm shocked out of my mind how PirateBay is still up.

*remembers Series of Tubes remix*

I'm glad many sites are participating in the blackout. Our computer science class was discussing this the other day and it is certainly a scary bill. It just sounds poorly thought out. How a website can be responsible for a user posting a link to something pirated is just plain stupid. Sites can only do so much to prevent such things.
On an interesting note, I heard a man from the UK is being put on trial in the States because he broke the law there. Funny thing is he never set foot in there. Makes me wonder what could happen with this particular bill put into place.

Oh noes, this website be goin' down soon. (if it passes)

I don't think Konami would try to be on one side or another, it would look bad, but if it passes, I'm sure they'll use it.

Edit: Interestingly enough, if you go to Wikipedia (only works for SOPA page), it says that Nintendo originally supported the bill, but then removed their name from the list of supporting companies.

Sony was on the list as well, if I remember correctly. They have since removed themselves from the list of SOPA supporters.

EA is part of the Electronic Software Alliance, but they have spoken out against SOPA.

And as of yesterday, the entire ESA has backed out of their support for SOPA. So every company associated, whether they individually came out against it or not, no longer supports SOPA.

That's good. There was some game companies that were even going boycott E3 because ESA was pro SOPA.

So, Who's Next? FileSonic, FileServe Disable Sharing; Upload.to Down...

Quote
Mega's been seized and its leaders locked up, but who's next? Are you next? Welcome to the very tense, fear-frought climate following the MegaUpload raids.

Go ahead, argue the due process and legal merits all you want - and MegaUpload will do just that - but the US Department of Justice, FBI, and MPAA are wielding gigantic guns here. And that is forcing MegaUpload's competitors to consider some very practical scenarios, including the possibility of getting shut down and buried for good. Because this is a bad, bad place to be:

http://digitalmusicnews.com/images/1172.jpg

Over the weekend, FileSonic opted for total insurance: they disabled all file-sharing on their lockers, with almost certain user fallout expected. FileServe quickly followed suit, with attrition a guaranteed result. But fleeing users is probably better than a knock (or bang) on the door from the FBI.

http://www.digitalmusicnews.com/images/1170.jpg


RapidShare - among the largest locker-and-hosting services - is confidently staying put, which in this uncertain enforcement climate could be risky. "RapidShare AG was founded in Switzerland and in fact, it was always located at the address given in the company details and was always run under real names without any anonymous intermediate businesses," RapidShare CEO Alexandra Zwingli told ARs Technica. "The radical measures against Megaupload were apparently required since the situation there had been totally different."

But just like FileSonic, others are also playing it very safe, at least for now. That includes upload.to, which has reportedly disabled also sharing and seems to have denied access to any US user. Their site looks like this from a US terminal, more on this situation as it emerges.

http://www.digitalmusicnews.com/images/1171.jpg

The question is whether this starts spilling beyond locker services, and towards other major players like SoundCloud, Grooveshark, MediaFire and even Dropbox.

And, anyone partnered or associated with MegaUpload is potentially in broiling water. In perhaps in the strangest twist yet, Swizz Beats is fighting to distance himself from his CEO position at the company, with lawyers arguing that the rapper and producer never formally started the gig.

If this is like their Blackout thing last week, you can just disable Javascript to access the site.
