STOP SOPA!

HijiNKS ENSUE has gone dark today in protest of the U.S. Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT-IP Act (PIPA). The U.S. Congress is about to censor the Internet, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill these bills to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

These bills would allow government agencies and corporations to take down my website if they felt my comics infringed on their copyright or intellectual property without trial or notice. Considering how much I traffic in parody and fair use, this is a very bad thing. They could even take my site down if someone linked to an infringing file in the comments.

I enjoy making these comic for you and giving them away for free. SOPA and PIPA seriously threaten my ability to do that, much less make a living from it. Contact your congressperson! BE LOUD! BE ANNOYING! Don't let special interest groups with deep pockets that DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THE INTERNET WORKS censor our Internet. [OK, enough preaching. If you want to get to the comic, you still can.]
