This needs to be starred and flagged out the wazzoo unless there is already another one on it.
Nice find, OP.
From the source :
"The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) was introduced just one week ago, but it's greased and ready to move, with a hearing in front of the Judiciary Committee this Thursday."
If that thing goes through we might be kissing dear ATS goodbye...

On September 30, 2010, the Senate Judiciary Committee postponed the scheduled markup of the Internet censorship bill — a fantastic outcome, given that the entertainment industry and their allies in Congress had hoped this bill would be quickly approved before the Senators went home for the October recess. Massive thanks to all who used the EFF Action Center to write to your Senators to oppose this bill.
As has been widely reported, the “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act” or “COICA” has stalled in the Senate. This amazingly noxious bill was expected to sail through Congress on the backs of “Big IP,” the recording, movie and television industries. If this bill becomes law, it will have far reaching effects on the Internet as a whole.
