MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said that Wednesday would be a strange day for people who spend a lot of time browsing the Internet.
In an unprecedented move, an estimated 7,000 websites plan to shut down for the day in protest of the House’s Stop Online Privacy Act and the Senate’s Protect IP Act.
Under the bills, Internet service providers could be required to block access to websites accused of violating U.S. copyright laws.
But activists and Internet professionals argue that the bills are too broad and could result in the censorship of legitimate content.
“For those of us who basically live online like I do, tomorrow is going to be a very different day than we have ever seen before,” Maddow said.
