    ONLINE encyclopedia Wikipedia will shut down its English language website at 4pm today (Melbourne time) to protest against anti-piracy legislation facing the US Congress.

    The foundation behind the popular community-based encyclopedia said in a statement the dramatic 24-hour action would be taken because of serious concerns about the impact of the proposed laws on the concept of a free internet.

    The unprecedented move brings added muscle to a growing base of critics of the legislation. Wikipedia is one of the internet's most popular websites, with millions of visitors daily.

    "If passed, this legislation will harm the free and open internet and bring about new tools for censorship of international websites inside the United States," the Wikimedia foundation said.

    The Stop Online Piracy Act in the US House of Representatives and the Protect Intellectual Property Act under consideration in the Senate are designed to crack down on sales of pirated US products overseas.

    Supporters include the film and music industry, which often sees its products sold illegally. They say the legislation is needed to protect intellectual property and jobs.

    Critics say the legislation could hurt the technology industry and infringe on free-speech rights. Among their concerns are provisions that would weaken cyber-security for companies and hinder domain access rights.

    The most controversial provision is in the House bill, which would have enabled federal authorities to "blacklist" sites that are alleged to distribute pirated content. That would essentially cut off portions of the internet to all US users. But congressional leaders appear to be backing off this provision.

    Tech companies such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter, eBay, AOL and others have spoken out against the legislation and said it threatens the industry's livelihood. Several online communities such as Reddit, Boing Boing and others have announced plans to go dark in protest as well.

    Google will not go dark, but will add a protest link to its homepage in support of the cause.

    "Like many businesses, entrepreneurs and web users, we oppose these bills because there are smart, targeted ways to shut down foreign rogue websites without asking American companies to censor the Internet,” a Google spokesperson said.

    “We will be joining many other tech companies to highlight this issue on our US home page."

    The Obama administration also raised concerns about the legislation over the weekend and said it will work with congress on legislation to help battle piracy and counterfeiting while defending free expression, privacy, security and innovation in the internet.

    Wikipedia's decision to go dark brings the issue into a much brighter spotlight. A group of Wikipedia users have discussed for more than a month whether it should react to the legislation.

    Over the past few days, a group of more than 1800 volunteers who work on the site and other users considered several forms of online protest, including banner ads and a global blackout of the site, the foundation said. Ultimately, the group supported the decision to black out the English version of the site.

    Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia who first announced the move on his Twitter account on Monday, said the bills are a threat to the free, open, and secure web.

    "The whole thing is just a poorly designed mess," Wales said in an email to The Associated Press.

    Wikipedia is also requesting that readers contact members of congress about the bill during the blackout.

    "I am personally asking everyone who cares about freedom and openness on the internet to contact their senators and representative," Wales said. "One of the things we have learned recently during the Arab Spring events is that the internet is a powerfully effective tool for the public to organise and have their voices heard."

    This is the first time Wikipedia's English version has gone dark. Its Italian site came down once briefly in protest to an internet censorship bill put forward by the Berlusconi government; the bill did not advance.

    "Wikipedia is about being open," said Jay Walsh, spokesman for the Wikimedia foundation. "We are not about shutting down and protesting. It's not a muscle that is normally flexed."

    Furthermore...

    So it has come to my attention that the US legislation Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) has affected some of our TLCG members.

    If you hadn't heard of SOPA before, you probably have by now: Some of the internet's most influential sites—Reddit and Wikipedia among them—are going dark to protest the much-maligned anti-piracy bill. But other than being a very bad thing, what is SOPA? And what will it mean for you if it passes?

    Currently, SOPA is an anti-piracy bill working its way through Congress...

    The beating heart of SOPA is the ability of intellectual property owners to effectively pull the plug on foreign sites against whom they have a copyright claim. If Warner Bros., for example, says that a site in Italy is torrenting a copy of The Dark Knight, the studio could demand that Google remove that site from its search results, that PayPal no longer accept payments to or from that site, that ad services pull all ads and finances from it, and—most dangerously—that the site's ISP prevent people from even going there.

    ...that would grant content creators extraordinary power over the internet, which would go almost comedically unchecked to the point of potentially creating an "Internet Blacklist" while exacting a huge cost from nearly every site you use daily and potentially disappearing your entire digital life...
    Currently it stands a shockingly good chance of passing unless WE do something about it.

    Currently, there is a 24/12 hour protest on numerous sites. Major sites like Wikipedia, BoingBoing, WordPress, TwitPic: they'll all be dark on January 18th (4pm EST) meaning that it's subsidiaries such as wiki.battlefield and wikia.skyrim will be down as well.

    The major hypocrisy in this piece of legislation is that while it's built, maintained and passed in the US, it has the ability to transpire it's law onto the international community. As we all know, the internet is a piece of our freedom and it is in no way OWNED or possessed. What the US is doing is not against our constitution but also against their own amendments.

    lol what's happening over there? Well SOPA shouldn't be considered a law, because corporations like Electronic Arts (EA), Adidas, Nike (here's the whole list of Major corporations supporting SOPA: http://theoriesofconspiracy.com/2011/11/list-of-major-companies-supporting-sopa.htm) are bribing the US administrative into passing the act without any consultations with the public Sad

    The great thing is that they wont be able to get away with it. While most citizens of any country are too lost in their own lives to realise what the government is doing, the internet is so incredibly used world-wide (They don't call it WWW for nothing) that the effects of such legislation would be felt with great force. Anything of this calibre will be protested and out as soon as it starts affecting and worsening the lives of the Average Joe. On a better note, while the Houses of Parliament may be stupid, they know they'd lose all support if an act like this was passed.

    The sad thing is, that this bill has come very close to passing, and it goes back to corporations and their money versus the common good. It may still pass when the legislature resumes, even though the Obama administration has said that it is not in support of it, which is even scarier. White hat hackers have even said that should the bill pass they are working on an alternative "uncensorable" counter-internet, so basically all its doing is causing turmoil and if it does pass, will cause many normally law abiding Americans to break the law and go underground to access an internet that should never have been censored in the first place.

    Google even has a doodle up in protest of this atrocity today.

    There is more or less no way to suppress the masses, and that's what this act will eventually end up trying to achieve. So I think it makes no sense to even attempt it.

    I was looking for this google doodle earlier, but I have yet to see it. Maybe it's just in the US.

    Talk about minimalist. If they'd have blacked out, even for an hour, that'd get more attention that most sites combined.

    Yes that would make a bigger statement, but Google being what it is, has businesses that pay for Ad space and there are many integrated API's that companies use for things like compiling data. Google doing a complete blackout could anger the shareholders and Googles customers.

    Isn't that the point though? If the act passed, and google was affected, they'd lose most if not all of the aforementioned shareholders anyway. That and the fact that the point of a protest is to disrupt and anger, so that the anger is focused on those who caused the problem. The reason why most protests do not work is because no one is willing to stand by their idea when things get tough >.<

    Major corporations such as EA, Nike, Toshiba are behind this and as a result has tremendous influence over the government. SOPA won't get passed because of the opposition it's facing right now but be warned. The government has its trick under its sleeves. Recently SOPA was renamed as a way to slip under the public eyes :/

    Rupert Murdoch let slip some of his arrogant thoughts regarding the issue, can't find the exact quote but he was slamming Wikipedia about the blackout as if they're just money-grubbing bastards. Irony at it's finest =P

    the NZ 'Skynet' law is basically this.

    If you ptp share and a corporation sends a complaint to your ISP, they send you a letter and you get a stike against your name. Three strikes and you will be fined NZ$15,000. Continue to file share and a corporation can take you to court to have your internet connection stopped for 6 months.

    They don't even have to prove you have illegally downloaded, not even in court. If a corporation says you did, that is one strike against you.

    to make matters worse, You are presumed guilty until proven innocent, you are not allowed a lawyer to represent you in court and even if someone hacked your connection and downloaded on your account, you are responsible, not the person who did it.

    This law, was passed under urgency by our government, knowing that this would have been stopped due to the numerous breaches of human rights this bill steps all over. Also called the 'Skynet' law because one of our MPs compared the internet to Skynet from Terminator.
