[Ars] Senate bill gives feds power to order piracy site blacklisting  

post #1 of 2

Quote:
Senate anti-piracy legislation introduced Thursday would dramatically increase the government’s legal power to disrupt and shutter websites “dedicated to infringing activities.”

A major feature of the PROTECT IP Act, introduced by 11 senators of all stripes, would grant the government the authority to bring lawsuits against these websites, and obtain court orders requiring search engines like Google to stop displaying links to them.

The new bill also gives content owners more rights than the old bill. It would allow rights holders to seek court orders instructing online ad services and credit card companies from partnering with the infringing sites—a power the government is granted from either legislative version.

We thought China was the only country that has ridiculous censorship. We were wrong.

Even if we get past the DNS by using a direct IP address, things are doing much deeper than that.

I'm not sure how many of these COICA/PIP threads have to be closed/deleted before it's clearly understood; no political news. Closed.
