Tucows to take down entire software library in protest of SOPA

Tucows is mostly known these days for its Registrar business but since the mid-90s it has also created one of the biggest repositories of shareware software.

In protest of the SOPA bill currently under discussion, Tucows will take down this monumental web site for a full day.

“The proposed SOPA (and equally odious “Protect IP Act“) legislation is fundamentally flawed in how it works and the damage it is likely to do to the Internet, which has been the greatest platform for innovation the world has ever seen. For that reason we will be joining the blackout organized by our friends at Reddit by blacking out the Tucows Software Download site on January 18th from 8am to 8pm EST (1300-0100 UTC).”
