WP SOPA&PIPA protest blackout
So the Wikimedia Foundation is making an unnecessary protest tool out of the English Wikipedia, kicking the already dead SOPA and PIPA bills so hard that now they're both ZOMBIES.

Like really, I don't even know what to say. Every site, aside from Nukia, is doing all these SOPA/PIPA drills. It's ridiculous. It was understandable at first: SOPA and PIPA would utterly destroy the Internet. But now, it's getting sort of unnecessary.

What do you guys think?

RE: WP SOPA&PIPA protest blackout
I believe this is completely necessary as SOPA and PIPA are still a threat. They shelved SOPA indefinitely and PIPA is still out there. They may even slip SOPA into another bill under everyone's nose, so this is still a threat and absolutely necessary.

Um.

They did this four years ago, too.

But to a lesser extent. Look it up, SOPA and PIPA build on preexisting bills.

But yes, SOPA and PIPA went down without a vote yesterday.

It isn't going to pass.

Oh right, and BC, it's the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act.

They're pretty bad. Pretty much, the idea is to make laws that are just Internet-related to discourage piracy.
