Internet blackout

Yesterday several web sites decided to go "blackout" because of a piracy ruling being passed by the American government. Wikipedia was mentioned on CBC news, but I discovered when I posted yesterday's photos that Flickr had also joined in the boycott. One of my photos was blacked out and others had requests that I follow suite.

I don't know the details about the bill. I'm not a big fan of politics. I thought rather than get in a lather about something I know nothing about, I would sit it out and see what happened.

Apparently, the law makers backed down.
