On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill that would give the Attorney General the power to shut down any web site that they feel might be violating copyright laws. Did you catch that part? They don’t have to actually have proof that your website has broken a law – They’ll be able to completely unplug you from the Internet based upon a vague and arbitrary standard of evidence.
If the power to shut down a website based on an assumption of guilt is given to the Attorney General, this will be a death sentence to any business faced with this punishment, whether they are guilty of a crime or not. We all agree that copyright infringement is illegal and people should not be doing it, but creating open ended laws such as this do nothing but chip away at our freedoms.
Obama MUST be a one-term President! (He's on his way at destroying America during his first term! Stop this low-life)!
