This is such a load of bollocks.
Supporters of PROTECT IP say the bill would help shut down foreign websites that sell counterfeit, and sometimes dangerous, products. PROTECT IP would save U.S. jobs by shutting down online sales of counterfeit products, Steve Tepp, chief intellectual property counsel for the Global Intellectual Property Center at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, wrote in a blog post last month.
"Rogue sites ... flood the U.S. marketplace with dangerously defective products, attract more than 53 billion visits per year, and have total disregard for U.S. laws which are designed to protect consumer safety and intellectual property," Tepp wrote. "Consumers should be able to rely on trust and good faith in buying legitimate products online. Rogue sites and online criminals abuse this trust for their illicit gain."
And that's why we will effectively kill sites like You Tube , Facebook or Twitter .......... DERP !!
I guess this is American version of Digital Britain at least it's equally stupid and aimed to pray on people who know nothing about internet and will swallow any old BS they are served.
It's most likely funded by R.I.A.A and M.P.A.A as they are the ones who stand to gain the most if this was put in place.Edited by RobotDevil666 - 10/26/11 at 8:50am
