What happened to Wiki “Blackipedia” Blackout?
Hey Hey ! what happened to wikipedia?? it just went black all of sudden ! Seriously I was like doing research on some work…then this page popped up..what ever it is..i need wikipedia back ASAP ! Well, I did research on this “blackout“..
The online encyclopedia is one of the Internet’s most visited sites, and at midnight Eastern Standard Time it began a 24-hour “blackout” in protest against proposed anti-piracy legislation that many leading websites — including Reddit, Google, Facebook, Amazon and others — contend will make it challenging if not impossible for them to operate.
It’s a dramatic response to the Protect Intellectual Property Act under consideration in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House, a pair of bills backed by the motion picture and recording industries that are intended to eliminate theft online once and for all. [Source]
