    Today Stop The Wall published an open letter from various music artists (including MGMT, OK Go, The Lonely Island, Nada Surf, Amanda Palmer) and other creators and personalities (Neil Gaiman, Aziz Ansari) concerning the SOPA and PIPA legislation. The collected artists add their voices to the already massive concerns from Google, Wikipedia, Craigslist, Reddit, and dozens of other websites.

    Some of the text:
