Today is American Censorship Day and the Electronic Frontier Foundation dearly hopes that we will contact our representatives and make our voices heard. The idea of blacklisting websites and blocking information access sends chills up my spine. It is difficult to fathom any bill getting through Congress that serves to control the Internet and the flow of information. Unfortunately the Stop Online Piracy Act is not a joke. The bill would give new powers to the Attorney General for Internet take-downs. Apparently no court process or judicial review would be necessary. Not to be outdone, the bill also has a buddy: the Protect IP Act. For more information on the the latter bill check-out this video from AmericanCensorship.org.
