Wiki protest!

What do netizens do when Wikipedia decides to protest?
Imagine a World Without Free Knowledge
is a protest by Wikipedia against anti-piracy legislation in the U.S.

The bill in question is Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)
that has the backing of motion picture and recording industries to put an end to piracy on the internet. But this, the biggest web companies say, will transform the web as we know it.

It is a 24 hour black out, but wiki has been tweeted all over today. In solidarity!
