SOPA, otherwise known as the Stop Online Piracy Act, is bad news. Not just for gamers (and the internet at large) but for developers as well.
Frozenbyte, the Finland-based indie studio behind Shadowgrounds and Trine, is well aware of just how damaging SOPA will be to independent developers; many of whom rely on word-of-mouth to promote their games. To them, SOPA is much more than just an affront against their personal freedoms, but potentially damaging to the way in which they do business.
With more and more companies withdrawing their support and speaking out against the egregious law every day, there is still hope for free and unrestricted internet. However, don’t let that stop you from following Frozenbyte’s example and speaking out (in a manner of speaking) against SOPA in any way you can.
