In the United States, a new law proposal called The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) was introduced last week, and there will be a hearing in front of the Judiciary Committee this Thursday.

If passed, this law will allow the government, under the command of the media copanies, to censor the internet as they see fit, like China and Iran do, with the difference that the sites they decide to censor will be completely removed form the internet and not just in the US.

Please see the following article from the Huffington Post for more information.

Please take the time to sign this petition:

That's a sick AoB. the government should spend their time fixing things that need to be fixed and if they really cared about just cleaning up copyright infringement i am sure they could think of a better way to do it.
remember, america isn't really a democracy anyway, don't be surprised if this goes through and the only websites we can use are govt sponsored

where it says B up there is supposed to be a P so yeah i don't know how i messed that up but yeah and stuff

well any important law like that which is approved in US can affect the other countries, which is why those politicians should use that small brain of theirs to think better before approving such laws

you should thank you to the admins from demonoid which posted there this article, i only wanted to make this thing known to more people

Update: On September 30, 2010, the Senate Judiciary Committee postponed the scheduled markup of the Internet censorship bill — a fantastic outcome, given that the entertainment industry and their allies in Congress had hoped this bill would be quickly approved before the Senators went home for the October recess. Massive thanks to all who used the EFF Action Center to write to your Senators to oppose this bill.

This gives the public more time to remind legislators why any bill that interferes with the infrastructure of the Internet is a bad idea. This bill will be back soon enough, and Congress will again need to hear from concerned citizens like you. So stay tuned to EFF.org for new developments!

that it is postponed is a good thing but it isn't over because it will come back. I really hope that they just drop that stupid law.

i think that it is a first step, and I dont think that ISP like this law very much because this law wont just screw with their servers but they will also lose a lot of clients when they will start to remove servers, so I still think that we have a chance that the law wont pass.

if it will pass i believe that most of the internet users will avoid using US servers for their sites, which will result in big loss of money, but i am afraid that other countries will follow US and try to make this law available in their country
