Major online tech companies have join forces together in participating in a 24 hours "Internet blackout" Wednesday, Jan. 18 to protest against two controversial anti-piracy bills: The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA).

SOPA is short for the "Stop Online Piracy Act," and PIPA "Protect IP Act." ("IP" stands for "intellectual property.") These bills are efforts to stop copyright infringements, committed by foreign web sites, however, internet advocates believes they do so in a way that infringes freedom of speech while harming the Internet.

The shutdown adds to a growing body of critics who are speaking out against the legislation. For a complete list of websites that have confirmed there participation go to SOPAStrike.com.

According to SOPAStrike.com, on January 24th, Congress will vote to pass internet censorship in the Senate, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill - PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House - to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

Will the blackout make any difference to the fight against the two bills? How do you think these internet blackout will play-out? Tell us what you think, let your voice be heard.
