    • On October 29, 2011, by Dizzylemon - Do you understand the details of this bill? If there is one item on a webPAGE that breaks the S.968 act rules then the entire SITE can be shut down. Also the government can then block that site from search engines so no one can visit that entire site again without already knowing the direct address. This is the same thing Americans criticized China for. The government has already agreed to block people from donating to Wikileaks because they want to end the funding they receive. This act puts America on the fast track to a police state when it comes to sharing information. Also if one person uploads pirated content to a site the site can be held liable. No more Youtube or twitchtv. It is not only about protecting intellectual property. It is also about controlling information.

    • On July 02, 2011, by shad0w - How could anyone support this? Unless you are getting your pockets lined with money from the recording industry that is. Not only a significant breach of human rights, but would put institutionalize government censorship of the internet. Totally ridiculous and I'm shocked this bill has even been thought of in our so called "free" democracy.
