You might not think that a hardware/software company like Nitrogen Logic would care about a web-focused set of laws like the Stop Online Piracy Act and PROTECT IP Act in the US House of Representatives and Senate. However, we all depend on a thriving and free Internet for commerce and learning. Laws like SOPA and PIPA would have a chilling effect on user participation on the Internet as well as new startups. They would also send a message from the USA to the rest of the world that it's OK to censor the web. As such, Nitrogen Logic will be joining the Jan. 18th blackout in protest of SOPA, PIPA, and similar laws. If you visit the Nitrogen Logic site on or around Jan. 18th, 2012 you will see a message about the proposed laws with links to more information.
