Senate panel approves domain name seizure bill.

COICA (Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act)

Cnet's article http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-20023238-38.html

Its pretty shocking how fast this proposal is being pushed through the congressional mechanism. This is disturbing to me. Fearing this is more then an attempt to battle copyright infringement, and will be a devastating blow to net neutrality as a whole. And if you do or plan on generating web based income. From say holding content warehouses or acting as front-end sites for such content(not unlike your fandom). It might be wise to follow these developments.

I'm not even into pirating much anymore, but these recent events coupled with the whole ISP priority bandwidth BS. Makes want to set up a proxy, and build a server farm. It all reminds me of a satirical artist rendering from the china google dispute a while back.
