service provider shall take technically feasible and reasonable measures designed to prevent access by its subscribers located within the United States to the foreign infringing site (or portion thereof) that is subject to the order, including measures designed to prevent the domain name of the foreign infringing site (or portion thereof) from resolving to that domain name’s Internet Protocol address. Such actions shall be taken as expeditiously as possible, but in any case within 5 days after being served with a copy of the order, or within such time as the court may order.
OMG, It's even worse than before. Now the government has the ability to block and censor websites they may find infringing, no wait, limited purposing... I don't know what limited purpose websites have (all websites have a purpose) and their definition of limited purpose is definitely vague. I mean what does the house consider definitely vague?
This bill makes the PROTECT-IP act look like a haven by comparison. I swear people are going to protest this if the house somehow uses it's connections to pass this instead of PROTECT-IP (even though both bills are bad news.), I mean why should we become like China and firewall ourselves off from the world?
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Welcome to Communist China. Oh, wait, this is America? Well, you wouldn't know it from the censorship laws. The law is PURPOSELY vague to allow which Party is in power to shut down any signs of opposition on the Internet.
This law has NOTHING to do with piracy, and EVERYTHING to do with censorship.
This is going way too far. Way to strip away our rights congress. -.-
Really since when is the U.S. into censorship because that is what this is at best. The senators and congress really need to get their heads out of their ass and off the payroll of all these special interest groups.
This can't happen... are they really trying to kill the internet? This is just ridiculous...
Seems like the government sides with the fools. When will they stay out of our personal lives!
Don't worry this will be pushed. And when the censoring is in place the true shift of power and the suppression coming with it will be censored away. Any media reporting on such a thing is an infringer and will be shut down.
Your current government is bought, there's no way around that and it's part of the 'culture'. But once people will protest more and more and the 99% might cause a change of rule by government. Thèn ALL your freedoms will fall away under a loud applause of the 99% who will notice what they have done when it's alrdy too late..
I call it a 99% danger of losing 99% of your current freedoms when 99% is being deceived. The red regime will come led by 99%, once in place it will suppress 99%.
It's a tradition for 'free regimes' / democracy to go down in applause of it's own deceived people.
