I don't expect this to get far, not that those in the national government wouldn't mind.

I would go you one step further than using lower case in "supreme court" and simply call it the "national court," there should be nothing "supreme" about it. The people of the various states need to check the national government whether that be an executive order, legislation, or court decisions.

Someone is going to get pissed, raise hell, and cause a whole slew of legal battles which will likely make its way up to the Supreme Court, where the law will likely be declared unconstitutional. Happens all the time here in the USA .

So... when they say censor... do they plan to go as far as other countries out east did? That's a little extreme.

Here we go .. US and Australia forcing censorship on internet users.. what happened to parents filtering their internet usage for their kids? I hate the idea of any government trying to enforce censorship upon the citizens of any country.

I still think this bill has a lot more hurdles to get through before it passes.

This has nothing to do with piracy.
I could see this as more likened to the "Fairness Doctrine" or even the "THE RADIO ACT OF 1927".

Both of which have big negatives.
This is a take over (not unlike china) of the internet plain and simple.

"Oh, that will never happen, your crazy."
"Tyranny in America? No Way, your crazy, never happen."

All I can say, is, ,,, ,,, ,,, "If you say so."
But someone needs to pull their head from their corn hole and get a clue.

Bill is essentially dead, there's enough opposition outside of committee that there's no time left this session to get it to a full vote.

What's troubling is this passed out of committee 19-0. I can understand a split vote down party lines or whatnot, but not even 18-1? There wasn't one person who saw through this garbage?

Idiots.

This! Oregon Senator Wyden put a "Hold" on the bill. It ain't goin' nowhere. One of the wonderful and frustrating things about the Senate is that it is designed to force a bill's progress down to a snail's pace.

Any Senator can place a "Hold" on any bill indefinitely. The only way to move the bill forward is for the Senate to vote on cloture and I doubt that's gonna happen any time soon.

Relax and write to you Senator's and Congressperson. Let them know what you think.

I somehow don't think giving AG Eric Holder the power to shutdown any website he deems to be in violation of property rights laws is a good thing.
