Internet Censorship Bill Would Spell Disaster for Speech and Innovation

There’s a new bill in Congress that would threaten your right to free expression online. If that weren’t enough, it could also put small Internet businesses in danger of catastrophic litigation.

That EFF outfit was founded by Perry Barlow and Mitch Kapor. They're old timers I knew on The Well. The Well is where much of the Internet began.

I hate these kinds of "let's make a law" bills. Everything at issue that needs to be illegal is already illegal and then some.

Internet needs something to discourage international intrigues and cyber-bullying at home, but that's not it. It needs to look more like a non-FCC FCC. There needs to be some kind of entity in charge, like the old Cabal when the net was pretty much a university thing.
