Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales defends SOPA protest blackout [telegraph.co.uk]
Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikipedia, has defended the decision to blackout the website around the world tomorrow, despite other American technology companies refusing to follow suit.
He said: “The general sentiment seemed to be that US law, as it impacts the internet, can affect everyone.
“As for me, what I am hoping is that people outside the US who have friends or family who are voters in the US, will ask them to make a call to their senator or representative, and I hope we send a broad global message that the internet as a whole will not tolerate censorship in response to mere allegations of copyright infringement.”
