Wiki vs SOPA and PIPA: Infringement

Why is Wikipedia blacked-out?

An article on the protest

" The bills, the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House and the Protect IP Act in the Senate, are backed by major media companies and are mostly intended to curtail the illegal downloading and streaming of TV shows and movies online.

But the tech industry fears that, among other things, they will give media companies too much power to shut down sites that they say are abusing copyrights."

"Mr. McLaughlin said the fear is that on large and diverse Web communities like Tumblr, any user who uploads an unauthorized clip from a movie or an unreleased track from an album is putting the whole company in the line of fire."
