English Wikipedia Blackouts for SOPA and PIPA Protest

The English Wikipedia started announcing last January 16, 2012 that there will be a blackout for 24 hours on January 18, 2012 to protest against SOPA or Stop Online Piracy Act and PIPA or Protect IP Act, which may seek court orders to websites who were accused of copyright infringements. This bill may also enable barring search engines, including advertisers, for linking to copyright infringed websites, and Internet Service Providers were forced to block such sites.

This act may cause internet censorship and may lessen the freedom of speech.

Therefore, I am also against SOPA.
