Wiki joins anti-SOPA blackout

following reddit, WordPress and others.

The SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is the global initiative by the US authorities (a kind of collision: why global, but by the US?) designed to fight piracy. The act should give the government a right to close any website that is caught infringing copyrights.

Imagine closed twitter of Facebook? :) No wonder the majority protests.

SOPA is stupid. Rather than trying to invent a new way of delivering content to the users, the entertainment industry is doing everything to prevent the delivery that more and more customers prefer with each passing day. Customers will find ways around SOPA! And the entertainment industry will fail as it does not innovate anymore!

This law will enable the government to abuse its powers in one more way and will contribute to the courruptive practices, when the owners of pages, infringing copyrights, will bribe officials, so that those will not close down the site.

Whoa, looks like the whole hype around SOPA and PIPA war purposed to mask ratification of ACTA by the European countries. Welcome to the brave new world!

P.S.: Can't they think of better names for their bills? These ones are u-u-u-ugly.
