Wikipedia to Close for 24 Hrs to Protest Piracy Law: N.Y. Post

Wikipedia, the free online information service, is to shut down for 24 hours from midnight eastern time tonight in protest against proposed U.S. anti-piracy legislation, the New York Post reported.

Founder Jimmy Wales believes the planned legislation poses a threat to the future of the Web, and is backed by Facebook Inc. and Google Inc, while Hollywood film studios back the legislation because they say it protects intellectual property and jobs, the newspaper said.

Wikipedia, whose content is provided by an army of volunteers, gets on average 25 million hits a day, according to ComScore, the Post said.
