The Stop Online Piracy Act is so polarizing in the tech world that huge web companies like AmazoneBayFacebook, and Google are considering going dark in order to spread awareness, reports ExtremeTech.

Imagine going to Google.com to do a search only to find some explanatory text on what SOPA is and how to call Congress to voice your opinion on it.

There's no plan on when the blackout would occur, but January 23 looks like the most likely date given that Congress is scheduled to debate SOPA on January 24.

ExtremeTech shares the full list of companies that may participate in the blackout. Again, consider what the Internet would be like without access to any of these companies' services:

  • AOL
  • eBay
  • Etsy
  • Facebook
  • Foursquare
  • Google
  • IAC
  • LinkedIn
  • Mozilla
  • OpenDNS
  • PayPal
  • Twitter
  • Wikimedia Foundation
  • Yahoo
  • Zynga
