Wikipedia To Go Offline for 24 Hours

Starting Wednesday (18-Jan-2012) USA time, Wikipedia is expected to go offline for 24 hours protesting against anti-piracy legislation currently under construction in the congress.

The SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) contains clauses that would force search engines to stop listing infringing sites in their indexes.

Wikipedia founder sees it as a threat for Internet freedom and net neutrality.

Shortly after Malaysian lunch time, Wikipedia should have been gone offline.
