Censorship of the Internet Takes Center Stage in “Online Infringement” Bill By Richard Esguerra 21 Sep 2010 Senator Patrick Leahy yesterday introduced the “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act” (COICA). This flawed bill would allow the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to break the Internet one domain at a time — by requiring domain registrars/registries, ISPs, DNS providers, and others to block Internet users from reaching certain websites. The bill would also create two Internet blacklists. The first is a list of all the websites hit with a censorship court order from the Attorney General. The second, more worrying, blacklist is a list of domain names that the Department of Justice determines — without judicial review — are “dedicated to infringing activities.”

  1. “People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up,” Obama told Rolling Stone in an interview to be published Friday. The president told Democrats that making change happen is hard and “if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place.” [huffington post]

  2. I don’t want to “take my ball and go home,” I just want to pull the ball out of the hands of a quarterback who is running towards his own goal line with it, smack him in the face, turn him around, and say — THAT WAY JERK!
