Congressional Support Maps for SOPA & PIPA!

Today is a day of widespread protests against the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). Major websites like Wikipedia and Boing Boing have gone dark all day, while other giants like Google have made announcements on their pages about the protest.

There is a map showing Congressional support and opposition for H.R. 3261 (SOPA) and a PIPA map showing support and opposition in congress for S. 968.
