Reddit and Wikipedia to Shutdown in SOPA Protest

Popular news website Reddit is planning on a 12 hour blackout in protest against the SOPA piracy bill that is currently being considered in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Apparently Wikipedia will be joining Reddit in that Protest as will many other websites acorss the Internet.

While the goal of SOPA was to make it easier to fight against copyright infringement, the reality is that it provides anyone who claims copyright infringement an easy way to censor the Internet without having any due process that is currently provided in the DMCA provisions.
