Google Joining Tomorrow's SOPA Protest

According to CNET, Google's homepage will tomorrow join the likes of Wikipedia, Reddit, and Boing Boing in protesting SOPA and PIPA.

"Like many businesses, entrepreneurs, and Web users, we oppose these bills because there are smart, targeted ways to shut down foreign rogue Web sites without asking American companies to censor the Internet," a Google representative said. "So tomorrow we will be joining many other tech companies to highlight this issue on our U.S. home page."

Although there have been a few bumps in the road, tomorrow's online protest seems set to generate an enormous amount of awareness.

The sheer volume of coverage of Wikipedia's decision yesterday alone has brought an unparalleled quantity of attention to the anti-SOPA/PIPA movement, and Google's participation will only strengthen and emboss these gains.

Most importantly, the significance and seriousness of the protest is now in little doubt.
