As Wikipedia promised, after keeping their English website offline for 24 hours, the English Wikipedia is back online.
Wikipedia is protesting against two “Anti-Piracy laws” that have been proposed in US Senate. Wikipedia and many other websites feel that in the garb of curbing piracy, Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) would actually serve as tools to censor Internet. To protest against that, Wikipedia took their English website offline for 24 hours on 18 January 2012.
When Wikipedia’s English website was online again, on their Homepage, they had a Header with the first line reading, “Thank You For Protecting Wikipedia”. The second line in the Header read, “We’re Not Done Yet”. The “Learn More” button is also there in the Header.
What do you think Wikipedia would do now to protest against the freedom of Internet? Do you support Wikipedia? Post your comments.
