Say NO to SOPA

21-01-2012

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) if passed will drastically change the internet for the worse. To avoid SOPA supporting products a nice and free android application was developped by NoMoreSOPA. You can use it to scan bar codes to help identify if products are either created by or intimately related to SOPA supporting companies. There are currently over 800 brands/companies on a list. This will help you avoid SOPA supporting products to show your displeasure with the bill and help get it voted down! Read more about SOPA here.
