A bill was introduced into congress today in regards to the first U.S internet censorship. DNS Blocking is the same technology that China and North Korea use to censor their web traffic. If we allow them this, what else do you think they'll try and pass? As the general population, we cannot sit back and allow this to happen. we must atleast try to get it stopped. here is the website the sign the petition, the more signatures we can get the better. This is our future we're talking about, and this is one of the things we can try and help shape. Lets not this up, shall we?
(please don't remove this on grounds of advertising lol. im just trying to spread word of a good cause)
Oh, and if you were thinking of trying to automate a script to sign hundreds of signatures, you probably shouldn't. hacking or cheating the petition will just give them more reason to pass the bill, and possibly make the petition invalid.
I believe we can make atleast somewhat of a difference. Liking the above link on social networking sites will also spread the message to other people who can hop on board the petition too. Feel free to share it with everyone you can!

Cheathappens would be a prime target because it hosts images and discussions relating to copyrighted content.
Yeah, the bill is that stupid. Basically if it passes, unless the website hosting certain content is also owned by the rights holder for that content, then the website is in violation of this new law and is subject to penalty, which in most cases would be immediate shutdown with no prior warning and blacklisting of the IP address.
