We at 42wd Publishing own, manage, and represent many intellectual properties. Properties that depend on protection from the abuse of SOPA. We ourselves are threatened by the larger publishers shutting us down by a simple accusation because we do things different from them, we are growing and we are creating opportunities they don't want creatives, writers, comic artist, music makers, poets, and so forth. All of this is a threat to them and if SOPA is passed they can end it with a simple accusation.
To protect 42wd Publishing, the intellectual properties we own, manage, and represent, we are joining the thousands of others boycotting SOPA today by blacking out our website.
Remember, our voices are loud and we will be heard if we stand united!
