While this “blackout” seems to have been inspired from the SOPA blackout, website functionality will not be blocked completely. The tribute message can easily be closed for readers to resume their regular browsing. People can also click a link embedded in the tribute message to find out how to help aid the campaign (this mainly involves signing a few petitions).
Being the owner of a website myself, I’ll be participating in this semi-blackout. What about you? Do you own a website? Are you going to be participating in this? Let us know in the comments section below!
