    If SOPA is passed, you might see something like this when visiting your favorite website.

    Some websites today are protesting the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) today, but you can still view them with a view internet tricks.

    A problem with the anti-piracy legislation is that websites must shut down while being investigated for copyright infringement until their day in court. Laws already exist that protect copyright and stop pirates online.



    To still view Wikipedia, download a Wikipedia app on iTunes to your iPhone and you can browse that way.

    An outdated mirror of Wikipedia exists called The Free Dictionary Encyclopedia. Google it and try that.

    View cached pages of your favorite website if they exist by clicking the right arrow in Google’s search results.

    The protest will only take place on January 18, but permanent shutdowns might happen if SOPA is passed in the U.S. Congress.

    The protests should be over by 12:00am January 19.
