Now Playing: 7-9-13 Marketplace Tech: Protests or coup, Wikipedia decides

The violence on the ground in Egypt following the ousting of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi is very real and very deadly. Yesterday some 51 civilian supporters of former President Morsi were reported killed when military and police fired on demonstrators. There's no comparison to that in the digital world. But there is a debate about semantics happening on a Wikipedia page describing recent events in Egypt: are they protests or a coup d’état? The answer could have real world consequences.
