SOPA Strike

Several websites (including Wikipedia and WordPress) are planning to go on strike on Wednesday, Jan. 18 to show their opposition to the on-line piracy bills now being processed through the House and Senate. SOPA stands for “Stop Online Piracy Act,” and refers to legislation introduced in the House this winter that is aimed at cutting down on file sharing, illegal downloads, and other online piracy. The strike will take down a variety of web sites for at least 12 hours.
