Wikipedia (English language) Blackout Wednesday 18th January

Wikipedia Blackout
You need to know this.  Tomorrow (Wednesday), you won't be able to access Wikipedia in English, because they're protesting about proposed anti-piracy legislation in the United States.

Read more about the politics on Wikipedia (before or after the blackout!).  It's about the freedom of information, and who owns it.  Make your own mind up what you think.
