Blackout for Hungary!

“On the 21st of December the party holding the majority of the Hungarian parliament voted in favor of a new media law that is a collection of some of the most oppressive and undemocratic laws from all over Europe including some worrying additions.”

To show their concern, The Pirate Bay along with several other popular torrent trackers will shut down on January 5th, for at least 24 hours. I, unfortunately, am not able to do that, because doing that would require me to just show a login screen on a blank page, which defeats the purpose of the splash screen. But don’t worry, I will support torrenters all across Hungary (since I kinda live 10¬†kilometers¬†from the Hungarian border :P), and hope these ridiculous laws are lifted.

If you have a site, blog, or something similar, support the B4H cause! Shut down your site for 24 hours (with a black splash screen from the URL below), or at least show a banner on your main page. Both can be found at:
