Wikipedia, the world's free online encyclopedia, went dark on Wednesday against the online piracy legislation ......... What do yo think about this action by Wikipedia?
The growing anti-SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) support that has swept through the gaming and Internet community found a very big ally today. With websites like Reddit and Wikipedia and gaming organizations like Major League Gaming prepared for a blackout on January 18th – the same day that the House Judiciary Committee hearing on HR 3261was scheduled in Washington, DC – President Barack Obama has stepped in and said he would not support the bill.

I think it is working just fine!
As per my view: that move from wikipedia is right. Freedom of internet user is at stake, if not controlled in early stages of SOPA, it's going to be very bad for entire world. Politicians and big corps will decide what you should share, surf, buy and do online. Of course, you have to understand what freedom means in any form on the internet and real life to see why these protests matter.
Over to you: What do YOU think?
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I was not aware about these facts. I can not support such type of legislation.
conservatives right there with the rest against this legislation.
it's great to see the issues that all can agree on
