"Black Out " protest against SOPA and PIPA
« on: January 23, 2012, 11:12:38 PM »
I was quite surprised to see the wikipedia home page on 18th of this month. At the first glance i thought it was hacked and i discovered the clue on the next day.Actually , it was a protest of wikipedia and some other websites against the anti piracy bills SOPA and PIPA  which were decided to be presented in american congress.If these bills are passed we will no more be able to upload any material on any site which we have not purchased.
