    1. Yah definitely. As book bloggers we post quotations, book covers, movie images, and book trailers. That puts us in the line of fire.

      Have an awesome day! :)

  4. Thanks for your post! I'd never given much thought to the effect it could have on us book bloggers. It really is a bad law. Hopefully it doesn't pass.

  7. They so need to get their brains in working order. I mean it's not hard to see how bad this really is. I just wish that FB and Twitter did a blackout today. I mean even congress uses those social medias and it would get their attention.

  12. This is really so scary. My hubby read over the bills for work and it's incredible what they're trying to slip into the bill. Some protection is needed to prevent some piracy, but this isn't the way to go about it. If I wanted to live in North Korea I'd move their, but that's exactly what this legislation would do to us in the US. It's awful! Great post!

  13. I'm so glad you posted about this! More people need to know how it affects us book bloggers! I love the picture too, it makes it easy to see how much of a difference one person can make by spreading the word. Thanks Juju! :)

  15. I wonder if the UK government would soon be doing something similar or would they be sneaky about it and do it quietly so there would be no protests...

  16. So glad you took part! My blog was blacked out on the 18th, too! I agree, as bloggers we use covers, quotes, trailers, and other images necessary to spread the word on books we love! Thanks for helping spread the word. I plan to do the same again on the 24th!
