MassWrestling will black out to protest SOPA/PIPA tomorrow.

The site will only be this video and a link to [link]

Please sign the petition tomorrow, and consider writing our state senators and state representatives.

While it is a longshot, there is a chance that if SOPA/PIPA were to be signed into law, MassWrestling could unfairly be targeted and defenseless. As a community driven site, the content here is currently not "my" or the "site's" responsibility. However, were these to go into effect, the site and I would be legally responsible for anything posted on this site that is illegal (e.g., copyright infringing). An easy example is wrestling videos posted here.

This is not a liberal or conservative issue. I find it absolutely absurd that congress is wasting its time with bills written to make the MPAA and RIAA happy while we still have serious unemployment, an unaddressed deficit and debt to deal with.

If you don't care about this, don't worry, MassWrestling will be back after tomorrow.

Did I wake up in North Korea?? What happened to the Constitutional Amendments while I was sleeping?
