I'll be updating this post throughout the day with more images of sites that have joined the SOPA blackout. Leave a comment with any site you'd like to be added to the gallery, which will remain here after the blackout is over. Also note that these are "above the fold" screencaps--if you have full-page captures, please feel free to send them, and I will try to get as many of those myself as possible by the end of the day.

Click an image to see a larger version. And if you've been here before, you might want to head on to page 2 of the gallery.

Several sites are using this spotlight overlay, created by Zachary Johnson in Cyberspace (Zachstronaut) and released on Github, LibreOffice, Michael Moore, Postsecret and Greenpeace

 

Flickr is allowing each user to put the following blackout image over 10 of their pictures:

2600 has sliding text. The full content reads:

2600 is unavailable. We've joined a 24 hour darkness campaign in protest of bills like SOPA and PIPA. Such bills could make sites like ours permanently dark. You may have heard that the battle is won, that SOPA and PIPA have no chance of passage. Don't be misled.

Your actions and awareness have already made a HUGE difference, but bills like these will always be around in every corner of the globe, waiting for the net community to let down its guard.

This show of solidarity is only one way to demonstrate our power and the willingness of people to stand together. Thanks for being a part of it by reading. Please learn more at this site. To join the protest, visit here. To contact your elected representative, go to https://blacklists.eff.org

Free Internet Press

 

Red 5 Studios

 

Major League Gaming

 

Peter Gabriel, Real World Studios, and related sites

 

The page started getting slow to load for some folks after 66 images, so we started a second page. Continue there!

All I know is at this rate we might as well shut everything down, radio, tv, even the local paper. We can all go live happily back in the stone age. Oh wait I think theirs a copyright on that already. The ice age, oh wait there's one there too.

This really is a dilemma, okay, how about a mutual agreement. make your product available for a fair and reasonable price. It hurts when I gotta spend a half a days pay to go watch your stupid movie at the theatre, An hours pay to buy the newly released cd. Depending on format roughly half days pay for Hottest flick on DVD or BluRay. A days pay for the hottest video game titles. A weeks wages to see one of my favorite artists in concert. Ok won't settle for less than the middle ages, atleast the music was tolerable, the ale was... well stale, and im thinking my broadsword could teach that pen a thing or two about manners.

Note that the spotlight overlay is the work of Zachary Johnson. He has the code on github and has placed it in the public domain.

Even better than my last post, a "My Little Pony" fansite, Equestria Daily, is getting in on the protest. In fact, it feels as though fansites like these would be right in the line of fire when it comes to legislation like this.

I've got several webcomics (as well as some of the others you mentioned) on page 2 of the gallery, so I've caught some. But how did I miss Sluggy Freelance?!

neither of these are typically safe for work, but one is fully blacked out and the other is initially completely obscured by the SOPA protest, making it possible to view the protest page without seeing any offensive images e621 at http://e621.net and Fenoxo at http://fenoxo.com. both of them usually have a splash page, anyways. i figured i'd submit these for the sake of completeness.

Aaand I'm back. I looked through a few of my webcomics (far too many for me to actually go through the whole list) and came up with these. I don't think there are any duplicates, but I could be wrong.

MegaTokyo: http://megatokyo.com/ Comic, plus a rant from.. it says Kalium, a guest?

I, unfortunately, double posted. This is even more unfortunate when I realized that I missed some things.

I’m sure you’ve heard the details of Wikipedia’s blackout in protest of Internet censorship (SOPA and PIPA in particular), but if you haven’t, here’s an article that I read today which summarizes everything perfectly: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=HAIXJA...

Aaaand my final addition to the list, something I forgot to post yesterday.
Yosh! Comics: http://www.yoshsaga.com/ No dedicated comic, but a long and entertaining blog post, wherein the author describes the people pushing the bill as "a bunch of idiots poking the internet with sticks".
