Then, I search for more infos on google, tumblr and twitter. IT WAS REALLY SHOCKING TO ME. SOPA, PIPA OR WHATEVER 'PA' ARE TRYING TO STOP THE SERVICE OF FREE AND OPEN INTERNET. Tbh, Google and Wikipedia are my biggest sources. These sites helped me a lot since school.
As quoted from The Daily What :
Internet Blackout of the Day: The Great Wikipedia Blackout of 2012 has begun.
Reddit, TwitPic, Mozilla, Mojang, and thousands of others will soon follow suit. The Internet is officially on strike! Why? Because the House and Senate are conspiring with the entertainment industry to break the Internet.
Make no mistake: SOPA has not been shelved. And a vote on PIPA is just around the corner. Luckily, hundreds of companies, charities, and notable individuals with strong moral character have joined forces to stop these dangerous Big Brother bills from moving forward.
The fight is far from over, but hopefully today’s blackout will help bring this important matter to the attention of folks who rely on the Internet for entertainment and education, but have so far remained oblivious to SOPA and PIPA and their harmful consequences.
If you absolutely must scab, here are a few useful links:

Typing in “126.96.36.199” should bring you to the front page of AO3, for example, just as typing “188.8.131.52/dashboard” should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. Since we’re obviously bracing for the worst case scenario which would involve you not being able to access the internet regularly, you should, save this list.Dear Tumblr-ers, -ites, ettes, and whatever other things you may prefer,
Please reblog the crap out of this. Add to it if you feel there is stuff necessary but missing.
P.S. Thank you to the lovely who wrote this up.
