Wikipedia Blackout Over SOPA
You've heard of SOPA and PIPA, right?
If not, they are proposed bills that will allow the US congress to act against any website based in its region that violate copyright law.
Content owners could issue a court order against a website that hosts unauthorised copyrighted material, which can result to a whole website being shut down.
Many companies have already decided if they are for or against the proposed bills.
And today marks a day where Wikipedia begins its protest against the bill, by taking their English language pages offline for 24 hours.
If you tried to access Wikipedia's English home page, you will be welcomed with a political statement: "Imagine a world without free knowledge."
Wikipedia Mobile is still available, however.
Reddit, a user-generated news site, and the blog Boing Boing are also taking part in the protest.
Google.com has also joined the protest, with its blacked-out logo that links to a petition urging Congress to not censor the web.
What do you think of all this? Do you think that this protest is reasonable?
