Wikipedia to go dark to protest web piracy drafts

The draft legislation has won the backing of Hollywood, the music industry, theBusiness Software Alliance, the National Association of Manufacturers and the US Chamber of Commerce.

But last month, the founders of Google, Twitter, Wikipedia, Yahoo! and other Internet giants expressed concern over the two drafts, saying in a open letter that they would “give the US government the power to censor the Web using techniques similar to those used by China, Malaysia and Iran.”

    Good. What we need is to table both Houses of Congress and the White House, “rendering” it “moot”. Then a over. You know, like a mulligan, kinda’, sorta.. 🙂

    I don’t think that this is a problem right now. The House has tabled the legislation thereby rendering it moot.
