Wikipedia shutting down tomorrow in protest over piracy law
If you’re an spurious information junkie, you’d better stock up on all your facts today – that’s because Wikipedia will be ‘going dark’ for 24 hours tomorrow, as it protests about the nasty new SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) law that is being touted in America at the moment.
Admittedly, the law has got nothing to do with any of us here in the UK, or anywhere else in the world, but Wikipedia aren’t bothered about that. Tune into their English-language website tomorrow and all you’ll see is information about the SOPA. As well as Wikipedia, the likes of Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter and eBay have spoken out about the proposed law, which they believe goes too far and will be too damaging to the online world.
