Wikipedia, Google protest US antipiracy proposals

SOPA: Wikipedia Blackout

January 18 is a date that will live in ignorance, as Wikipedia started a 24-hour blackout of its English-language articles, joining other sites in protesting pending U.S. legislation aimed at shutting down sites that share pirated movies and other content.

Senh: Dammit. I didn't think I would be affected by this too much, but I am. I tried submitting an article to reddit and the site was blacked out. I tried researching something on Wikipedia, and it too was blacked out. At least there's still google.
