The criminal federal government just gave itself the right to create a system of internet blacklists.
While the law itself will most likely be struck down in the courts after the criminal Hussein signs it into law, it is important to note that it is the system it establishes that is so dangerous.
Once such a system is in place, its uses will most certainly expand beyond blocking of “pirate” websites.
The lifetime of my blog just became limited.
A bill that will allow the US government to force internet service providers to block websites accused of illegal file sharing was passed the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday morning by a unanimous vote.
The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) will permit government officials to set up a system banning the Domain Name System of any website they believe is engaging in activities related to piracy. It will also ban credit card companies from processing any domestic payments to the websites and forbid online marketing agencies from doing business with them.
