A bunch of sites are doing some form of blackout or soft blackout
(interstitial) on Wednesday (Jan 18) against SOPA. enwp mockups at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SOPA_initiative/Blackout_screen_designs

It'd be nice if acawiki could join in, and even nicer if it also
promoted opposition to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_Works_Act which would make it
harder (ie $$$) for people not at rich universities to access primary
research in order to summarize.

I don't know that anyone has done a slick contact-all-relevant page
for RWA -- http://www.taxpayeraccess.org/action/action_access/12-0106.shtml
may be closest, good to link to if there isn't anything better.

I will put some possible text and options for display on
http://acawiki.org/AcaWiki:SOPA-RWA in a few minutes.
