What can you do to show your support?

Facebook users are also urged to protest by joining the “Stop Internet Censorship by Protesting SOPA event” and posting censored photo galleries to their Facebook walls on the 18th.

WordPress users wanting to join in the protest might find the SOPA Blackout plugin, which adds a temporary 503 status and customisable page to your site automatically. Blogspot users can easily show their support, too.

This list will be updated as I find out about more participating websites. If anyone has news of other sites joining in the protest, let me know (please include your source) so I can add them to the list.

    Thank you for making this list! I have a few other sites that have confirmed they will also be blacking out on Jan 18. These are smaller sites, but every one counts!

  2. Omar Saif says:

    My website is joining the strike as well

  3. Cori Summers says:

    No problem! I just found a few more:

    Newgrounds (Source)

    Seibertron (Source; about halfway down the page)

    Through the Eyes of a Pirate
    “I will be taking down “Through the Eyes of A Pirate”, my resume website, and my elections website (not fully active) for January 18th as a part of the black-out. I will also be disabling my “Northern Cyclist” wordpress (it’s dormant anyways, but may as well). None of them are particularly high-traffic sites, but it’s something I can do unilaterally to participate in the black-out.
    As for pulling the PPCA site. This was brought up during the Political Board meeting lastnight, and was met with some concern, namely around the timing of the General Assembly. From the general idea, I don’t think it will be going down, however a message will be posted to the front page concerning SOPA and the blackout.”

    I will black out both my YT channels, livestream and with a static anti-SOPA message for 24 hours on the 18th of this month. (Source via Twitter)

    Thanks again! And by the way, I’ve posted a link to this page on Reddit. I’m hoping other people will help build this list too.

  4. Clay Allen says:

    As insignificant as my small gaming community is, I am also doing a blackout.

  5. Nikki Blight says:

    Great! Adding them now.

  6. Kyle says:

    Add under Reddit please! I am the founder/Owner of SeekMyBeat and I AM STRONGLY AGAINST SOPA! MY Site will be joining the blackout!

  7. Sheryl says:

    We will be blacking out our site:

  8. Travis says:

    The [H]ard | OCP Gaming Community [H]ard | Gaming will also have a full blackout.

  9. Nikki Blight says:

    Awesome… keep ‘em coming!

  10. Our online social magazine, Inkerro, will be having a blackout.

  11. We will not be preforming a full black out but will be displaying a SOPA message on our site and possibly more.

    Just for confirmation:!/LeslieNetworks/status/157960327894548482

  12. It’s not much I know, we get a few thousand visitors a day, but The Weekly Gripe will be joining the blackout.

  13. Chris says:

    I know I don’t have a ton of traffic on any of my sites but I will be installing the SOPA WordPress plugin and plan on shutting my handful of sites down for the day, the biggest being WordPress for Business Websites. I am also going to try to get my clients to let me put the plugin on their sites. I fear much of these sites will be “preaching to the choir” and we need to get non-tech sites in on it.

  14. Sburns says: (A local business) is taking down their site the 18th and 23, and possible there sister company too.

  15. brantje says: will also go black on Jan 18th.
    This my own website, which handles the updates from foursquare, twitter and facebook.

    I will alter the user timeline, so in the evening they will learn about SOPA :)

  16. Michael says:

    I have a few others:
    My Minecraft server and forum:

    As well as a large Minecraft server providor:


  17. EcchiDreams says:

    Our Hentai Community [EcchiDreams] will be joining this blackout.

  18. MentaL says:

    MMORPG development community shall also be blacked out during the protest.

  19. Dave says: has confirmed that they too will be participating.

  20. GeNyaa says: shall also be blacked out during the protest.

  21. To draw attention to SOPA and encourage people to speak up about it I will be blacking out my websites. At one point the largest of my sites was the most visited atheist website in the world. I estimate 25,000 unique visitors will hit my SOPA awareness page between 8 am and 8 pm. I urge all other webmasters to do the same. My only complaint is that we don’t shut down for the whole week. It would be worth it to ensure our future.

    These sites will be blocked, and more:
    Rational Responders
    Brian Sapient
    Celebrity Atheists
    Purpose of Christmas
    Atheism United

  22. EmeraldTokyo says:

    Emerald Angel Comics will also blackout on the 18th in protest. The urls are and Thanks for the info on the wordpress sopa blackout plugin. It makes my job easier. :D


  23. Fairy Tail says:

    I have a number of websites which I will also close down for this day. we must fight SOPA!

  24. I can confirm these sites will be blacked out as well:

  25. yt75 says:

    I don’ know SOPA in details, but for me regarding piracy, if the basic principles are :
    1) against piracy centers and not end users (always centers in piracy due to the need for catalogs and search amongst other things, “peer to peer” also a lot of hypocrisy in the terms and everybody knows it)
    2) No monitoring at all of end users flow, or collection of their IPs, a formal complaint required from somebody about a user acting as a center
    3) All procedures are legal and public
    Then it clearly is the right way to do it, not to forget that if piracy doesn’t create any revenues for authors and creators, it does create some (and not a little) for some people :

    Note : above more developed below (but in French) :
    And “zero piracy” doesn’t matter in anyway (not more than school kids exchanging files), problem is when it becomes the default and easiest access method for works and publications.
    But on this, in order to have a real “user experience” added value in buying instead of pirating, and this in a non quasi monopolistic environment (or with just 2 or three “monsters”), clearly something like below would be needed :
    And a little cartoon :

    • Nikki Blight says:

      You’ll get no argument from me that piracy is a problem… but SOPA is not the way to go about fixing it. SOPA is the equivalent of trying to swat a fly with a rocket launcher. Yeah, you might kill the fly, but god only knows what else you’re going to blow up in the process.

      The biggest concern with SOPA is not that it may stop piracy (which, to be honest, is a big assumption… if piracy were really that easy to stop it, would have been done a long time ago), but rather that the overwhelmingly broad power of the legislation can (and almost certainly will) be abused by those who wield it.

      • Allan Bernier says:

        I love your quote and I understand better with your remark, and I had copied and pasted your quote and of course, put your name next to it… your description of SOPA is loud and clear. Thanks!

    My sites I will be blackout :

    Sites of my client say confirm close :

  40. I just added the SOPA Blackout plugin to my photography business’ website and blog, both powered by WordPress. I will be blacking out these sites on January 18th, as well as the 23rd and 24th. As such, my small business may be affected by this blackout, but stopping censorship of the internet is a good cause. Even though my business is Canadian owned and operated, I have clients in the US, and it would be a major blow to my business if my sites ended up being blocked. I own the exclusive copyright to all my content, but who knows what the US government might consider piracy. We need to put an end to this bill NOW!

    My website and two personal blogs will be down:

    The owner of Wizzley has agreed to make my profile inactive:

    The owners of Suite101 can’t temporarily take me off, so I’ll just be removing my profile information and inserting a black picture instead. That was their suggestion to get around it:

    And my Runescape blog will be set to private, with the header altered to show it’s a SOPA protest:

    That’s all of my bases!

  51. Rivka says:

    Council of Elrond will be going dark on the 18th:

  74. Vam Tam says:

    Will be joining the blackout to protest SOPA/PIPA on January 18th?

    415.284.1420 x308

  126. We are observing the Total Blackout of the Internet
    In Protest to S.O.P.A. January 18th 2012

    Freedom of speech should never be taken away!
    The Government has no business censoring us from ourselves!
    The internet is a public domain area and should be off limits of the United States Government!

  127. GigDig says: has already blackened all user pages and hosted domains with an alert graphic pointing to the Electronic Frontiers Foundation (EFF).
    Question is, Will the EFF be blacking out as well?

  128. Nikkular says:

    Year of the Novel ( will be joining the strike tomorrow.

  129. Mayor McDaniels says:

    I dont want the Internet blackout.People use webesites to do homework and see there grads for school.I hate all of you.I cant believe that you want the Internet blackout ><

    • Calahan says:

      This is not about you, so stop crying. This is about our freedom and future, not about a couple little assignments.

    • Matt says:

      We want it to blackout so that the internet will realize that without it things would change forever. So much would happen. If it starts with this then it spreads to other countries and before you know it you will not even have internet. Plus if it gets passed anyone who has any kind of copyrighted material like a song in the background of a video that can be barely can be charged 5 years in prison…..

    • Wild Spirit says:

      You seem to be misunderstanding something here. Not all internet addresses are going to be effected. If you’re researching something on say Google, you can still do it. Maybe not all sites may be available for use but you still have some material to work on. And I highly doubt that a school website would participate in the blackout either so there’s no problem on your end if you’re trying to look up your grades.

  130. William Beach says:

    Michael Moore is joining. I personally can’t stand him… but it’s for the cause!

I will keep my Twitter site open to explain why @RickLondon as will Lee @LeeHillerLondon. We are all against Internet piracy (especially working in the arts) but this bill makes the pirates look like Mary Poppins compared to those backing it. To our knowledge we are the only husband/wife design team participating in this important online demonstration. Thank you for posting it.
