Websites ‘blackout’ over anti-piracy bill
In a protest that will affect millions of people across the globe, Wikipedia, along with many other websites, is shutting down for 24 hours.
The websites are protesting against legislation pending in the US Congress intended to crack down on online sales of pirated US movies, music or other goods by forcing internet companies to block access to foreign sites.
According to WIkipedia, these US anti-piracy laws could “fatally damage the free and open internet” and “severely limit people’s access to online information”.
What do you think? Is this a worldwide issue or just a US one? Have you tried to use English Wikipedia today?!
