SOPA and PIPA

At the time of writing Wikipedia is blacked out as a protest at the impending legislation in the US about online piracy and intellectual property protection.

It seems the only link up on Wiki is to their article on this.

Many people seem to be of the opinion that these bills could infringe unacceptably on free expression and lead to even such a humble website as mine being targeted for closure due to a perhaps unintended or even unwitting infringement of the proposed acts.

Not being a US citizen I have no direct input into this but add my sympathy for the action Wiki has taken.
