I don't normally stray to far from beauty things on my blog, but today I kind of am.
Today many sites and some bloggers are protesting SOPA.   I was reading a blogger's facebook who had taken down her entire blog in protest today, which mega props to her.   So mega props to Vintage Or Tacky and if you don't know what SOPA is if you click her page right now you'll certainly find out.

But in her comments on her Facebook someone had mentioned beauty companies supporting SOPA, then I was like wait, what?   So I googled a list of what companies support SOPA, if you'd like to see it click here but upon that list (are way too many companies first off) are Revlon, L'Oreal and Estée Lauder Companies (which includes MAC I believe).

I don't see what they even get out of supporting SOPA, money probably.

So I went off to their Facebook and left them all comments like this one:

- You may need to click it and make it bigger to read it.

Tsk tsk all you companies for supporting this, tsk tsk.
This just makes me sad.  *Sigh*

And all part of my brain can think of is this quote from "Young Frankenstein":

Inspector Kemp: A riot is an ungly thing... undt, I tink, that it is chust about time ve had vun. 

Except maybe the word riot is now replaced with boycott.

I'm attaching a link with another blogger's listing of companies that are supporting and ones that are closely related I guess would be the way to say it.  Oh please don't let all those companies support it, I may cry.

The Nailaholic.

Nooooo not Revlon! I don't see what cosmetic companies get out of it either, sigh...

I'm not sure what all Estee Lauder even owns, someone else added Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, Clinique and Origins to the list with MAC. Which is also sad.

I was super sad to see Loreal and Revlon on there, there were things that just recently came out I fully intended to buy but's unlikely I will.

Alot of non-tech companies are supporting the bill because it would prevent their images from being used illegally. There is alot of problem with websites not citing original content. I'm not saying this justifies their support, but it is their reasoning behind it.
