Writer's Block: American Censorship Day!  
Today, Congress holds hearings on the first American Internet censorship system. This bill can pass. If it does the Internet and free speech will never be the same. [Learn more here.] Do you support this bill?


No, no, NO! As it is currently written, I do NOT support this bill. While I do believe that copyright holders should have a way to pursue people who violate those copyrights, this bill will, among other things, give big businesses the right to pursue these accused felons directly, as well as smear the accused as "guilty until proven innocent," which is the exact opposite of how our legal system currently works.

See my previous post for more information about why this bill should ABSOLUTELY NOT pass.
