Numerous US-based websites, including Wikipedia, Boing Boing and Reddit have gone offline as a protest against two US laws that they say limits important freedoms that the internet has brought people.

The two laws are called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the "Protect Intellectual Property Act" (PIPA).

Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter, eBay and AOL have all spoken out against the proposed legislation.

Rob Beschizza, the managing editor of Boing Boing, joins us from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
