According to a recent (tweet)[https://twitter.com/#!/Netroots_Nation/statuses/159369352787922944] on the official Netroots Nation account, both Netroots Nation and the Netroots Foundation will be taking down their websites on January 17th. This blackout day is aimed to protest and raise awareness of the controversial Stop Online Piracy and Protect IP Acts.
Websites participating in tomorrow’s blackout include Wikipedia, MoveOn, reddit, and Mozilla, among others. Google has announced that it will not be shutting down, but instead plans to display a link and show of support.
While SOPA has recently been declared dead in the water, many still consider the Protect IP Act (PIPA) a serious threat.
