SOPA + Congressman Jared Polis Plays LoL

No doubt you've seen the massive thread on the announcements forums already, but here's SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) in a nutshell:
It's a copyright act that makes it so that owners of websites are directly responsible for any and all copyright infringing material any user posts on the site.
  • This means that any site with user-generated content is at a huge risk of getting shut down and/or sued just for allowing people to post music or videos on the site. (Including on a stream)
  • This includes Google (and Youtube), Amazon, Facebook and Twitter
Direct link to the forum post by Ryze, CEO of Riot Games. Contains more reasons why SOPA is evil in a big block o' text and needs to be stopped, but I think you get the gist of it.

While this is a grave concern, I personally think that the massive corporations listed before will probably be enough to stop the bill from passing. However, every little bit of effort from each individual does count.

To me however, this screenshot below is the most interesting part of the post: (Click to enlarge)


A congressman that plays League of Legends! I wonder if he rages or tries to solve all the problems diplomatically?
