    Will the blackout on Wikipedia in the USA  today have any direct effect on HubPages?

    The most direct effect on HubPages could be an increase in traffic to Hubs on HubPages, as people looking for information look for other sources than Wikipedia.

    The blackout today on Wikipedia won't have much of an effect on HubPages (immediately). The content is still accessible on Wikipedia, if you disable Javascript, or if you use a mobile device.

    However, if passed, SOPA and PIPA will directly impact Hubpages - because even if members do not violate any copyright, if Hubpages links to any page/site that violates copyright, it could be forced offline.

    Wikipedia has a good article on SOPA and PIPA: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia: … Learn_more
