The PROTECT-IP bill is making its way through the halls of the United States government, and besides an unfortunate name change, the bill has been altered by the House of Representatives in such a way, it would essentially allow the government and/or various corporations that feel infringed upon the ability to censor the Internet in whatever way they see fit.

Perhaps that last part is wrapped in some hyperbole, but then again, after reading portions of the updated bill, as well as some of the reactions to it, its pretty clear that, if passed, the American public could soon be using a very different version of the Internet than what were used to. The sad thing is, besides a small section of informed reactions to the bill, very few in the American public seem to know and/or care about the implications of PROTECT-IP, which, thanks to input from House of Representatives, now goes by the unfortunately-named E-PARASITE Act.

No one really thought the internet was going to stay free and unencumbered buy politicians did they?

E-parasite is right. They seem to be getting into everything. I bet not one of them is even familiar with the internet but they are bound and determined to control it :-(
