SOPA Revisited

In a follow up to this week's Waiting for and the issue of the proposed SOPA legislation, I wanted to bring everyone's attention to an independent comics publisher that has joined in the Internet Protest.

Head on over to Timeless Journey Comics, where they are offering two of their top titles, FOR FREE, all week long. Not only that, but the publisher has some very sensible words about what the legislation might mean for all of us.

Exfanding definitely falls under the web of this legislation (Mega Man YouTube videos, anyone? Or how about that one time we linked to the official Sirius Radio clip of The Gaslight Anthem?), so we're following how this whole thing is shaking down pretty closely.

Speaking of, it looks like the first hurdle to stopping the legislation has been cleared as the bill's main proponent has said today that he "will postpone consideration of the legislation until there is wider agreement on a solution." Good for you. Check out the full article, here, at the LA Times.

As with the rest of the Internet, we'll keep watching, but in the meantime, go get issue one of both Mack Turner: Slayer of the Dead and The Argonauts for FREE, and join in the fight!

I've read both books, and I can vouch for how good they are. Go check them out!
