Internet Censorship Bill Authored by Bob Goodlatte...

• Daily Paul

Bob Goodlatte is the super regulator that authored the SOPA bill. It authorizes the Attorney General to remove rogue websites from search engines and prevent ISPs from delivering them. All it takes is a third party to say that such-and-such website is stealing my content. They don't even have to warn you.

Here's Kwiatkowski's article about it on her website:


The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and “Enforcing and Protecting American Rights Against Sites Intent on Theft and Exploitation” Act or “E-Parasite” were introduced this week in the House Judiciary Committee. E-Parasite begins with this mission statement: “To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation by combating the theft of U.S. property, and for other purposes.”

Unfortunately, nothing in this bill, and the associated SOPA, promotes prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Representative Zoe Lofgren's (CA-16) reaction to the bill was, "this would mean the end of the Internet as we know it."

NetCoalition, the Consumer Electronics Association and the Computer and Communications Industry Association identified some of the bigger flaws, including criminalization of average people and the creation of new costly legal vulnerabilities for websites and service providers.
