I heard that a number of sites might shut down for a period of time in protest of the law before the US Congress. I think it's called SOPA.

Best Answer

Yes thats what I read, I dont live in the USA, so I dont fully understand the reason

Best Answer

Me either, except it's something to do with the government having the right to shut down sites if someone posts copyright material on them. Example--you post a copyrighted video on Youtube, under this law Youtube would be responsible and could be fined or shut down by the government for copyright infringement. At least that's the way I understand it.
