Wikipedia Starts its BlackOut against SOPA..


Wikipedia has begun its 24-hour blackout in protest against the SOPA and PIPA bills that have currently been 'shelved'. The online encyclopedia says that even though the bills are currently dormant, they have not completely disappeared. SOPA's sponsors have said that the bill will be brought back for discussion in February. Wikipedia opposes the bills because they fundamentally oppose Wikipedia's belief in free and open Internet. Wikipedia has stated that while some provisions of the bill are valuable, others are deeply problematic.

If you try to perform a Wikipedia search for any topic other than SOPA or PIPA, you will be greeted with a black screen saying that Wikipedia is down in protest for 24 hours. However, if you absolutely need to use Wikipedia, the encyclopedia will still be available on mobile devices. Alternatively, you can completely disable JavaScript on your browser, as the blackout message is powered by JavaScript. Other websites that will be down between today and tomorrow (India time) are Reddit, Imgur, Tucows.
