Wikipedia likely to shut down for 24 hours this week in a protest against internet piracy laws in the United States. A major target of the protest, SOPA (the Stop Online Piracy Act), has already been halted by opposition from the White House, but the founder of Wikipedia Jimmy Wales, said the blackout would go ahead anyway.
