PanicButton on January 18 - Internet Blackout

Dear PanicButton users,

first I want to apologize for the interruption and I assure you that the black bars will disappear tomorrow (January 19 00:00 UTC). Today is Internet Blackout Day and many websites (including Wikipedia and Reddit) go black to protest against

the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA),

two U.S. bills who threaten the freedom of the internet.

Please take some time and follow this link to learn more about it and to find out what you can do to prevent that:

You can also watch this short video:

Thank you!
