Bill would let US government block 'infringing' websites worldwide

Bill would let US government block 'infringing' websites worldwide 21 Sep 2010 US lawmakers have introduced legislation that would allow the federal government to quickly block websites anywhere in the world if they are dedicated to sharing copyrighted music or other protected content. The "Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act" would empower the US Department of Justice to shut down, or block access to, websites found to be "dedicated to infringing activities." Sites that use domain names registered by a US-based company, or a top-level-domain administered by a US-based company, would find their internet addresses frozen.
