This image shows a computer screen of the Google homepage on January 18, 2012 in Washington,DC. Wikipedia on Wednesday goes dark, Google blots out its logo and hundreds of other websites stage protests to oppose legislation in the US Congress intended to crack down on online piracy. Wikipedia shut down the English version of its online encyclopedia for 24 hours to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) introduced in the House of Representatives and the Senate version, the Protect IP Act (PIPA). Google placed a black redaction box over the logo on its much-visited US home page to draw attention to the bills, while social news site reddit and the popular Cheezburger humor network planned to shut down later in the day.
