Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) today i.e. “January 18” finally results into a black out day for many technology companies. The list includes the companies – BoingBoing, Wikipedia, Reddit, I Can Has CheezeBurger, WordPress, Mozilla, TwitPic, Minecraft and many others.
Wikipedia isn’t the only company shutting down its digital doors according to SOPAStrike.com. But many major companies has come forwarded and be a part of protest. The blackout is a way to get the two bills into the mainstream by showing people that how if the bill comes into existence will affect the people daily lives.
