Wikipedia is planning to go on a site-wide blackout in less than 10 hours.This is yet another resistance movement against SOPA and PIPA. The total disaster it might cause to the internet is becoming more and more clear and wide-spread. This is the first site-wide protest Wikipedia is making, as stated in their “Read More” page talking about the blackout. One thing they wanted to make very clear was that it is not a political stance. While they agree that the content of the site is neutral (still debatable), the committee does was to emphasize that Wikipedia’s existence could be in danger and therefore they need to take a stand. Hopefully more websites work against these bills and take a stand. There are already giant lists of companies and websites against SOPA.
