truedemocracy: The so-called Internet Blacklist Bill, S. 968, aka the PROTECT IP Act, would allow the Department of Justice to force search engines, browsers, and service providers to block users’ access to websites that have been accused of copyright infringement. It would also hold companies like Twitter and YouTube criminally liable for what their users post, which could effectively shut...
