Some real estate practitioners and technologists have taken a stance against federal anti-piracy legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives (SOPA) and the Senate (PIPA), worried that it could restrict the legitimate sharing of real estate information online.

Google’s logo was blacked out today in recognition of the protest, while the site remained fully accessible.
