German Wikipedia sites are off for 24 hours

I just wanted to read something about the film "maze runner", I recognized German Wikipedia sites are down for 24 hours because of some European copyright laws.
I realized I also speak and read English and switched to the English sites.

What do you think about that "action" to turn German sites off? I win of that situation to use and improve my English^^

Hi Nico,

those copyright laws are a pain and the reason why I cannot read certain articles from the US (mainly newspaper reports).

So I applaud the German wiki action although whether it will improve things remains to be seen..
