What is Black March? Android App

The second step to the people's protests against SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, OPEN, Congress.

Black March is a protest that involves boycotting any movies, music, games, books, even food; anything that  has a strong connection to a company that is behind SOPA (or any new act that is SOPA rebranded).

A new site has started up - MegaUprising, following this movement. It will be a great resource for news regarding the situation.

Will it pick up? Only time will tell. The activists behind this are on top of things, starting this early. This will give them all of February to spread the word.

If you also want to engage in this type of product activism you can head over to the Android Market and grab yourself a copy of Boycott SOPA which will let you scan in the barcode for any product and be able to find out if the company behind the product is a supporter of SOPA and PIPA.
I really hope that people get behind these kinds of ideas and actually make their voice heard through their wallets because that is what companies like these really hear and care about, as do the politicians.
