Poland’s support for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA, has sparked days of Internet protests by groups who fear it could lead to online censorship. Now several sites plan to go dark in protest. ACTA shares some similarities with the hotly debated Stop Online Piracy Act in the U.S., which was shelved by lawmakers last week.

Several popular Polish Web sites are planning to go dark for an hour Tuesday evening to protest the government’s plan to sign an international copyright treaty.
