The bill gives the Attorney General the Right and Power to shut down websites whether the website/owner has actually committed a crime. This is allows a Total Unilateral Police State of Authority Over the Individual’s Digital Guttenberg Press Access.
All in the name of Combating the Digital piracy that a handful of companies, (the fortune 500 companies) are experiencing but also the very ones inventing, creating and abusing copyright intention, purpose and laws.
It allows what has been deemed the “nuclear option” of Censorship that allows the Attorney General to turn merely ‘suspected’ websites off (denying DNS access). Illegal content on a site is not a requirement; links alone will qualify a site for the Digital Smart Web Denial.

Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the world wide web, said, “Neither governments nor corporations should be allowed to use disconnection from the internet as a way of arbitrarily furthering their own aims.” He added: “In the spirit going back to Magna Carta, we require a principle that no person or organization shall be deprived of their ability to connect to others at will without due process of law, with the presumption of innocence until found guilty.”
The Recording Industry Association of America, which represents individuals that have given Lehy nearly a million dollars, praised Leahy for his work at controlling the Internet for them by insuring “that the Internet is a civilized medium instead of a lawless one where foreign sites, that put Americans at risk, are allowed to flourish.”

What if Google was found to be a ‘suspect’ website or to link to a ‘suspect’ website? Would google be turned off? Would the google network not be allowed access to the world wide web, effectively shutting down the governments main contracted email provider, security intelligence provider, surveillance camera operations provider, officer GPS and navigations provider, work force tracking and allocations provider and the many, many municipal cities, counties and states that have contracted with google.com and set themselves up under google network of controls and services.
The Department of Homeland Security has some important issues before it with the ongoing violations that they are already facing with there TSA division and also activates that actually relate to “homeland security”, is expending time and resources to protect purely private interests really what we need to be empowering and directing them toward, do we need to imprison anymore non-violent citizens for Corporations Under Ever New Protection Laws.
