Google, the internet’s most popular search company will join the online protests against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA), international news sites reported on Tuesday, January 17, 2012.

According to reports, Google will post a link on its US home page on January 18 to inform users of its opposition to the anti-piracy bills being debated in the US Congress. Reports said that it will not replace the logo in its front page.

“Like many businesses, entrepreneurs, and Web users, we oppose these bills because there are smart, targeted ways to shut down foreign rogue Web sites without asking American companies to censor the Internet. So tomorrow we will be joining many other tech companies to highlight this issue on our U.S. home page,” a Google representative was quoted as saying.
