No E3 until ESA Drops Support of SOPA is an announcement vlog created by MatPat featuring several other people from online gaming-related companies and websites to protest the ESA's support of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) that threatened the existence of Game Theory and other online shows and websites.

Description Edit

Game Theory and most other online shows, Let's Plays, memes, parody movies, etc etc etc depend on a free and open Internet. SOPA/PIPA threaten to end this free exchange of ideas.

Sign a petition to have the ESA remove their support from SOPA/PIPA here -

Don't understand SOPA? Stephen Colbert explains:

Ask your favorite websites to join the cause by not attending and covering E3 this year until the ESA changes their stance on SOPA and PIPA! If they truly opposed this legislation the last thing they want to do is support an entity that spent $190,000 on PIPA lobbying.

Are you a video game developer, publisher or gaming website that wants to be involved with this movement? Email StandTogetherSOPA at

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first collaboration video on The Game Theorists.
