The ESA, the self-appointed lobbyist of the gaming and media industry is still throwing their weight behind SOPA and PIPA. These two bills will crush our free and open Internet we cherish so much. ESA’s largest income comes from the Electronic Entertainment Expo, also know as E3. We ask everyone out there to contact your favorite game company, Internet sites, and reviewers and ask them to remove there support of E3 by not attending or reporting on the event. Many of these company have already publicly spoken out against SOPA and PIPA. Now lets see them backup your words with action. Spread this message and video around everywhere, your favorite blogs, gaming sites, news sites, forums, and let the world know how we feel about these destructive bills attempting to be passed by Congress.
