AMIR will join the Internet Archive, Wikipedia and others in going dark January 18th in protest against proposed legislation in the United States — the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the U.S. Senate.
You can read a very good list of reasons to oppose SOPA and PIPA here, from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Like some other blogger based websites AMIR will be using the following
script from the morning of 18 January until the morning of January 19,
Others are welcome to use it.
