Instead of changing your Facebook icon to an anti-SOPA image for a day or two, here’s something you can do that might make a real difference: boycott the companies that supported this legislation. There are too many to boycott all of them effectively, so I propose we pick two or three, hit them, and hit them hard. Punish them for putting their interests above ours. Hitting them in the wallet should send a message.

Maddox has a good point there. To really make a dent the real target should be the people and companies that are behind SOPA/PIPA, that’s the only way to prevent this kind of censorship initiatives.
