‘The Day The Internet Died’ SOPA And PIPA Protest [Video]

Oatmeal SOPA

On January 18th, websites across the internet went on strike to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the related Protect IP Act (PIPA).

Some sites were completely blocked; others added censorship graphics to their banners, and some posted about the strike.

The point was to make all internet users aware of the bills before Congress and to encourage reader participation.

One of the best videos and songs was put together by the man who runs LOLcatz.

Ben Huh runs a large network of sites ranging from I Can Has Cheezburger to The Daily What.

All of them were blocked. The splash page that ran instead featured this song that struck all LOLcats fans right where they live.

While this song is creative and hilarious, sometimes a simple message is the way to go.
