    Piracy Bill

    Revised Legislation Empowers U.S. to Shut Down Piracy Websites - Security - News & Reviews - eWeek.com

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation said it was "no less dismayed" by the updated bill. The clause that would allow the government to prevent search engines from linking to sites could also impact social-networking sites like Facebook and Twitter or “potentially any service or Web pages where a URL might turn up,” the group wrote on its Deeplinks blog.
    Law-enforcement requires “necessary tools” to fight “illegal, parasitic Websites that steal the hard work of millions and expose innocent users to a spectrum of significant, real-world dangers,” said Philippe Dauman, president and CEO of Viacom. He claimed more than 140,000 jobs have been lost across the entertainment industry due to online piracy.

    I wish pirates were forced to use boats.

    Re: Piracy Bill

    I think "Piracy Bill" would be a pretty decent name for a real buccaneer. Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, etc are all well and good, but unless a person has already heard of you, you will likely need to explain it to them that you are a pirate. With a name like "Piracy Bill," you can forgo all that unnecessary explaining and get right to stealing their stuff.
