SOPA Nuclear Option

I just read this interesting post at The Daily Kos.

When the home pages of Google.com, Amazon.com, Facebook.com, and their Internet allies simultaneously turn black with anti-censorship warnings that ask users to contact politicians about a vote in the U.S. Congress the next day on SOPA, you’ll know they’re finally serious.

True, it would be the political equivalent of a nuclear option–possibly drawing retributions from the the influential politicos backing SOPA and Protect IP–but one that could nevertheless be launched in 2012.

“There have been some serious discussions about that,” says Markham Erickson, who heads the NetCoalition trade association that counts Google, Amazon.com, eBay, and Yahoo as members. “It has never happened before.”

If that was to occur that could potentially outrage not just US citizens but the entire world and could really put Congress in the fire pit over this legislation which is sickening similar to laws in China.

I almost feel this may be the best and only way to truly get the general public against SOPA as I would imagine the majority of US citizens haven’t even heard of SOPA.
