SOPA/PIPA Protest: The Day The LOL Cats Died - And More

What happens when you piss off the intelligent, creative, and tech savvy?  These protests are appealing to me as they draw on two of my favorite dynamics: 1) musical parody/social commentary, and 2) critical examination of the legislative law-making process which is too often passed off in civics classes as benevolent public policy making for the common good.  Pick your favorite version!

More SOPA protest:

WARNING! This one uses the F-word, as in "Don't f**k with the internet!"  But it is really very good and I think speaks to undergraduate students in their own idiom.

WARNING! This one also includes the F-word. For better or worse, it is part of the lexicon of protest.

. . . and too many more to include here. Go to youtube and search "SOPA song."
