Internet Censorship Bill
The US Congress is currently debating a new Internet censorship bill.This bill would effectively move copyright enforcement from the courts to the Congress. Some of you may remember that NicaLiving was a victim of an over-zealous enforcement of the DMCA a few years ago. We have since moved to a hosting company who doesn't treat its customers as criminals who only have 24 hours to prove they are innocent but this bill would move that decision from the company to the government.
This matters because so many Internet sites (including NicaLiving) are hosted in the US. The result of this regulation would likely cause companies to move their hosting outside the US which would both decrease business investment and employment. In addition, it would create web sites that could not be viewed in the US. In other words, creating a new China in Internet control.
