Can a Wikipedia blackout save the Internet?
I know it doesn’t feel like it now, but please believe me: There are worse things than losing access to Wikipedia even temporarily.For example, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) (aka H.R.3261) could become a law. The anti-piracy bill, which goes before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, makes the streaming of unauthorized content a felony. Which is all well and good, but as the Electronic Frontier Foundation warns, the bill’s “vague language would create devastating new tools for silencing legitimate speech all around the Web.”
