SOPA/PIPA strike is first of its kind

Tech Industry
speaker 1: For people like Sarah Reese, Wikipedia is indispensable. Speaker 2: Composers, people, actors, countries, whatever you need to know, you got it at Wikipedia. Speaker 1: But for 1 24 hour period, Wikipedia will close its virtual doors in protest to 2 pieces of national legislation, a decision that users say will have a large impact. Speaker 3: My fiancee's in college and he uses it as a reference. Speaker 4: I'd say that a very important source of knowledge would be taken away from me and my family. Speaker 1: The U.S. House of Representatives bills called a stop online piracy act or SOPA and it's pipa in the senate. Protect IP act. Speaker 5: What these bills would do is require US Internet service providers to pretend that these allegedly pirate websites (??) existed and (??) disappear from the Internet. Speaker 1: (The Fieldman?) recording industry support the legislation as well as CBS corporation, parent of CNET and CBS news. But some Internet companies like Wikipedia and Privacy advocates are in (??). Speaker 5: (??) speech implications of these. It's like saying there are few bad books in the library. So we'll just lock the entire library. Speaker 1: Dozens of other companies like (??) are joining Wikipedia in protest. Also Google plans on a home page protest link. Speaker 5: You can have 10 million phone calls to the US Congress signed one day. This has never happened before in the history of American politics. This kind of direct(??) inspired action. Speaker 1: One company that will not be joining the black out is Twitter. And it tweet CEO, (Dick Costelo?) said that Wikipedia's decision was foolish. In San Francisco, I'm Carey (??) cnet.com for CBS news.
