Minecraft Says “NOPA” To PIPA & SOPA

    January 18, 2012

Popular building game, Minecraft, has joined in on the SOPA/PIPA protest. Currently, if you visit the site you’ll see the image above with the following message:

We are joining the Internet-wide protest against SOPA/PIPA today on JAN 18th by shutting down our websites.

Oddly enough Minecraft.net chose the color red for their “black” out. You’ll also notice the title of the site has been modified to say “Site Down”.

Below are what some Twitter users are saying about Minecraft’s SOPA/PIPA protest:

Minecraft is doing SOPA blackout. If that means servers going down, millions of parents will call congress tomorrow :) http://t.co/dolwc7hU 5 hours ago via Seesmic twhirl · powered by @socialditto

It’s funny how the Minecraft anti-SOPA page has better graphics than Minecraft itself. 6 minutes ago via TweetDeck · powered by @socialditto
