Wikipedia mulls censorship protest over Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)
Wikipedia mulls censorship protest
A number of companies have protested against the bill, several of which wrote an open letter that was subsequently co-signed by AOL, eBay, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Mozilla, Twitter, Yahoo and Zynga.
As reported by TorrentFreak, Wikipedia is considering the most audacious protest yet, blanking out all of its pages. The article reports that Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has asked for community input; additionally, he "fears the bill could seriously hurt the Internet and thinks that blanking out Wikipedia will send a strong message to lawmakers".
