O'Reilly will go dark on January 18

O'Reilly's websites will go dark in protest of SOPA and PIPA.

On January 18, from 5 am to 5 pm PT, oreilly.com, Radar, Make, igniteshow.com, and our conference sites will join a growing number of companies and individuals to protest SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, and PIPA, the Protect IP Act, by going dark.

As we’ve noted in recent coverage and commentary, SOPA and PIPA pose a considerable threat to the content industries, the Internet’s architecture, cybersecurity, future businesses, and Internet innovation.

We believe going dark is the principled action to take.
