Actually, nobody has closed this website down.
In solidarity with Reddit and many other sites, this site is blacked out today in protest against SOPA and PROTECT IP laws. While we at the HeliOS Project understand the need for an artist, inventor or author to protect their Intellectual Property, the above-mentioned laws over-reach to the point where innocent websites will be erased from the Internet without due process or legal review.
These laws will be a threat to free speech and to the freedom of the Internet. Please contact your representative, who most likely doesn't understand how the Internet works, and tell them to vote 'No' on this law. You can learn more about SOPA here.
