So there's plenty of gaming companies out there that are still in support of SOPA, despite the fact that it'd harm their customers.

Razer's not standing for it. That was apparently their public response to SOPA. Very bold. Most of the gaming world is still warming their seats on the fence.

Quote from: Razer
Team Razer and Team Red 5 stand together in protest against SOPA at CES 2012.

JOIN US IN OUR PROTEST AGAINST SOPA AND SHARE THIS POST.

Now that we’ve got your attention, we want to draw your attention to a threat that threatens the very core of the gaming community.
The “Stop Online Piracy Act”, aka SOPA, is a proposed bill in the United States Congress that, if enacted, would effectively end the internet as we know it. In a ham-fisted attempt to combat piracy, Congress has opted for the “Nuke from Orbit” approach, hurting both the community from whom they benefit and developers they seek to protect. We cannot allow this to happen.

If this is the first you are hearing of SOPA, take a moment to read the bill itself ( http://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/pdf/112%20HR%203261.pdf ) by visiting the Electronic Frontier Foundation ( https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2011/10/sopa-hollywood-finally-gets-chance-break-internet ) for more information.

Allow us to stress, Razer does not condone piracy in any way. We feel it damages the industry and we will stand against anything that hurts either the gaming community or the developers. However, we firmly believe that SOPA is the absolute wrong way to combat this problem and we are not alone in thinking this. Other gaming companies like Red 5, Riot Games and Mojang stand with us in opposition. However, this bill does not only affect software and game developers and we hope our actions will lead other gaming hardware vendors to join our protest against SOPA.

So please join us in a day of protest. We will be taking down our site for one day, January 18th, to give you taste of what the future may hold if we fail to put an end to SOPA and similar ill-conceived legislation. In its place, we will upload the image above as a placeholder for our site. While this may have an impact on our business, we believe this is a small price to pay to show how the Internet could become if this bill was to be supported.

For Gamers. By Gamers. It is not just a motto, it is our way of life. We work hard to do right by our community. We’ll be damned if we’re going to let an attack like this go unanswered.

-Team Razer

*We apologize in advance to anyone offended by the image but it sums up our perspective to this draconian bill.

it is nice to see some corporations standing up against it without having to be threatened first....but it lives by their "motto" and all.
