OK i will do a quick rundown. January 24th our goverment votes on a bill that will break what we know as the internet. It basically makes them overly Inforce copyright acts. We are opposed to this and this is our advertising to it.

It's called the SOPA bill: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act

It's a law to stop online piracy, but it has many flaws that could cause the law to be abused and lead to sites like Omnimaga, Facebook or Youtube to be blocked in United States and possibly other countries.

Some sites on Jan 18th are perfoming a blackout to protest against that bill, so those sites will be temporarily closed between 8 AM and 8 PM that day. I don't think Omni is doing that, so this most likely explains why there's only a small banner.

Something I worry about is if they could go as far as getting ticalc.org blocked in USA just because it contains files like Zelda/Final Fantasy/Mario for calcs?
