[OSM-talk] OSM downtime as protest against SOPA?

first of all, sorry for bringing political discussions to the community,
as I always understand OSM as a political neutral space (we do creating
maps, nothing else).
But some of you might noticed that _Wikipedia will make a downtime_ at
Wednesday as a form of protest against the Stop Piracy Act (SOPA)
As this law endangers the creation and exchange of free material, too
('shutdown OSM/jamendo/.../ as it seems that they copied my property!'),
I would like to ask, if we might support the wikipedia action?
I have no idea, if this could be technicaly done by the Admins, or what
kind of protest (complete shutdown, serving demo tiles, locking
database, ... a banner) would be accepted by the most of us. I just like
to notify you, and maybe start a discussion.
