US Government seized 82 web site domains -- a preview of the Internet blacklist?
COICA, the Internet Blacklist bill, passed out of Senate committee on November 18th. It's now facing some stiff opposition in the broader Senate, but we need to let that opposition know we support them -- please add your name if you haven't already, and write directly to your own senators.
Sadly, the US government apparently doesn't want to wait for the bill to pass. They just seized 82 domains in a misguided attempt to censor the Internet and support the RIAA and MPAA War on Sharing. You can read EFF's analysis of the action, and see why it's so important for us to take a stand now.
