Internet Archive to blackout for 12 hours to protest against SOPA

Internet Archive is the latest online platform to announce support for SOPA blackout day.

Internet Archive has announced that they would go dark for a period of 12 hours from 6:00 am – 6:00 pm PDT on Wednesday January 18.

It said in a statement:

These bills would encourage the development of blacklists to censor sites with little recourse or due process. The Internet Archive is already blacklisted in China—let’s prevent the United States from establishing its own blacklist system.
