Internet sites shutdown to protest anti-piracy bills

Wikipedia, Craigslist, Reddit -- some popular websites shutdown on Wednesday in protest of anti-piracy bills.

The legislation is called the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, and the Protect Internet Privacy Act, or PIPA.

The bills attempt to block access to sites with copyrighted material.

Critics said it is censorship, but supporters said it is a tool to fight people who bootleg music and movies.
