Just nosing the net and found wikipedia is down due to a protest, SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) the US bills are trying to stop the same information being used on other sites. Ok yes it protects the origional writer, but how on earth can anyone proove they wrote an origional piece?? Regarding fish sites, this is going to cause problems if it goes through, can you imagine someone posting on a forum Help my fish is covered in white spots, any response to how to treat ich will have been "written" somewhere on the net!!! who can claim "I was first to say how to... blah blah blah" I dont know how long the link will be open, but its an interesting read.
