Don't ____________ the internet!



I mentioned yesterday the controversial project of a bill Protect IP ("Protect IP"). In protest to this bill (as well as the draft of the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) and the European Parliament's initiative Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA)) many websites announced that they are 'going dark' in protest today. They object to the intention of the governments and private parties to censor the net in the name of the copyright protection. Among the websites that announced they'd join the process are: Wikipedia, Wordpress.org, Twitpic, La Quadrature du Net etc.
