Default Fedora and SOPA

As most of you probably know already, in the close future in the USA is
scheduled for debate (and likely approval) a new law, called SOPA (Stop
Online Piracy Act) which is poised to widely restrict freedom on the
Internet [1]. It could also affect a lot the working of the Fedora
Project, which is a) based in USA and b) relying on user-generated content.


Some organizations, most notably Reddit at the moment, are planning an a
awareness campaign [2] about this on January 18 (Wikipedia is also
weighting it). Some will do a full blackout for 12 hours, some will put
a few informational banners.


Is Fedora willing to join such a campaign?
