SOPA and Fandom

Many Transformers fan sites along with sites such as Wikipedia have gone "dark" today in protest against SOPA, the "Stop Online Piracy Act". Without going into a long winded analysis, know that SOPA has the potential to shut down all sorts of sites. Sure there are the "big ones" like Google and Wikipedia, but what about sites like BWTF or TF2005? We too would be subject to attack by this policy since we carry material that could be construed as copyrighted or trademarked material (think screen captures from TV shows, scanned items from comics etc.).
