In protest of both SOPA/PIPA and the oppressive Internet-harming terms within, 80scartoons.net will be joining websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit, and Mojang in a 24-hour blackout.

During this blackout, all traffic will be redirected to a page explaining what's going on.

I'd like to make it clear that this in no way indicates support of piracy or infringement but the rejection of poorly-drafted laws that would cause more harm than good.

See you all on the 19th.

Aaand we're back! I hope if you're a US citizen you contacted your legislators about it. Thanks for your patience.

This isn't over. Rep. Zoe Lofgren has an urgent message:

There were some victories, but we still have work to do.
