Wikipedia goes on strike in piracy law protest

Text size Aa Aa

The online encyclopedia, Wikipedia’s English-language service is going offline for 24-hours on Wednesday to protest against planned anti-piracy legislation in the US.

The bill seeks to force internet companies to block access to foreign sites offering material that infringes US copyright laws.

But critics say it goes too far and Wikipedia’s founder says it would be devastating for the web.
