Maybe as an act of solidarity we can all change our avatars to the SOPA Geek for the week.

Maybe you should send your member of Congress a GROG-nized e-mail. Although it might be mistaken by a native English speaker for a death threat.

What? AGAIN?!? wasn't the 'first batch' enough already, and yes, I do belong to several online Groups that notified myself on this matter L-O-N-G before it 'cropped up here', by the way...

Did you get copyright permission to use that image for your avatar?

Someone was going to make the joke eventually.

If it passes I wonder if 99% of BGG users will have to change there avatars - we are obviously costing big business lots of $ by using their copyrighted materials for our avatars without permission, so unless we all dump them any one of them could come in and take over BGG domain and shut it down. As I understand it.


edit... and someone beat me to posting the obvious.

Colours... Your worried about Colours!!! You do realize that your in violation of international patent law for living!.

Seriously Several colors are already copyrighted/trademarked and last I read over 15% of the human genome is patented preventing any unauthorized use of those genes...
