Anti-SOPA Moves Mainstream

Now that Jimmy Wales’ announcement of Wikipedia’s participation in the Internet Blackout is out, mainstream netizens will unhear and unsee the various issues surrounding SOPA. Most people have distanced themselves from the pending bill in the US House. Some are unable to connect themselves to the issues. That’s not going to stay for very long.

Wikipedia joins Reddit in going dark on January 18th in protest to the proposed law that carries a provision of DNS blacklisting for sites reported to have infringed on copyrights. This will bring the issues home to teachers and students, all wikipedia users ( and I wonder who hasn’t visited the site in his internet lifetime).
