Crunchy would've said something on the front page by now if they were. I don't think you have to worry about Crunchy participating. The other thing is Crunchyroll is a paid subscription service (for some people), whereas social media like Twitter and Facebook is not. Crunchy could lose (paying) members if they participated without some type of notification beforehand.

Not having access to Wikipedia and Youtube for one day will be a minor inconvenience.

I wonder how much of an impact this one day event will be?

Well, I hope this spreads more awareness about the seriousness of the piece of shit known as SOPA.

Also not related but apparently, the English version of Wikipedia may still be accessed within these 24h by disabling the Javascript. I haven't tried it yet thou

They should impeach Lamar S Smith already for this lame idea.

Google isn't participating besides the logo.
Most sites will probably mention it but not actually do anything.

Just thinking about one facet of this -- if I understand things correctly, some talk of this legislation is that it may offer the opportunity for corporations to suppress websites because of even indirect copyright issues (such as fans discussing a show on an open forum), up to and including opening the chance for sites to be shut down without due process.

This could, in theory, affect Crunchyroll -- not from the anime/drama content per se, which is all officially licensed, but because people regularly and freely discuss all aspects of anime, including posting unlicensed photos/graphics shots and screen captures. Yeah, it's on the fringe of the legislation's interest, but this type of thing is being discussed on NPR and other news sources. Specifically, there have been efforts to completely suppress information that was seen as critical to a company's interests, all on the basis of alleged copyright infringements. Even when the claims were not valid is still affected the exchange of information.

So...it would be cool if Crunchyroll did something as part of the overall protest. Not restrict access to licensed content, but at least made some sort of nod to the issue.

Not suggesting they should, that's none of my business, but simply suggesting that it may be relevant.

Oh, this explains some things that's going on.

I'm just guessing if this bill pass they(sites) can/will be charging people just going into the site in the future or censorship... since media is going towards more to the internet.

I guess I'll just hide under my blanket for a time being.
