Overview

Wikipedia went dark on January 18, 2012. So did thousands of other websites, including search giant Google, all to protest a controversial copyright bill called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). The protest even helped to ignite mass demonstrations on the streets of over 250 cities in all 27 countries of the European Union to stop a similar attempt to regulate the Internet under the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). This book provides a gripping, behind-the-scenes look at how people organized the largest Internet protest in history, plus the largest single-day demonstration on the streets of 27 countries of the European Union. This grassroots movement involving millions of people won an unexpected, but historic first victory in the fight for a "free and open Internet."
