    What this bill would basically do,would be to block sites with even a claim of copyright infringment.

    Let's say for example,someone uploads a photoshopped image of MLP:Friendship is Magic to a site like Deviantart,and others learn about the art theft and start reporting it. Under the law,if there is even a pic of art theft on a site,it would cause the whole site to be blocked. There is no due process. Like go to a site like Ebay and see how much pirated stuff is on there from China.

    are we surprised? Reid is a douche, they want to censor freedom of speech instead of going after the real criminals.

    This shit extends waaaay beyond party lines.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Like your screen name. Is it named after the song by Billy Idol?

    oh I know, the author of the original bill was a Repub from LA, but from that article it's Reid pushing for this new one
