The information highway is deserted today. Wikipedia and others are staging a blackout in protest of the US government’s anti-piracy act. SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) aims to stop copyright infringers online through a series of penalties. Is this a case of goverment versus civil liberties? Just like our contentious copyright adventures in Canada, it seems that neither side can agree on how to protect copyright without trampling on freedom of information and the right to share it.
