For those of you wanting to participate in the upcoming Black March protest
against Internet censoring legislation, but favor a more targeted approach: The SOPA Boycott: Boycotting those companies that sponsored or supported SOPA and PIPA.
This allows participants to focus their efforts on larger companies and avoid harming indie artists and small businesses.
There are lists being pulled together to help focus the boycott efforts. One is here
. But near the top is a more compete list that also offers a boilerplate script
you can use to contact the individual companies you will be boycotting, to let them know your opinion and that you will not support their company unless they rethink their position. And there even is an app
to help you identify the companies and their products.
So whether you favor a total boycott or a targeted boycott, you can
participate and you can
tailor your level of participation. We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.
Note: the Business Software Alliance that represents a large number of software and hardware companies (Dell, Apple, Intuit, Adobe) withdrew its support in November, so keep in mind that the Google list is in process of being updated.edited to add:
