Those bastards. Who knows when this is gonna get a vote in the senate... but you must call your people so this BS doesn't pass.

Senate panel passes bill against piracy websites

U.S. agencies and officials would get new powers to go after foreign websites that sell counterfeit goods and pirated music, movies and books under a bill passed on Thursday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The bill, which supporters hope will set the stage for action next year, targets "rogue websites" in countries such as China that are outside the reach of U.S. law.

You know this bill is bad just by the people supporting it :

The measure, approved by the Senate panel in a 19-0 vote, has the backing of companies including Disney, Nike, Merck and Time Warner and groups such as the Screen Actors Guild, the Motion Picture Association of America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Committee aides said they worked with companies like MasterCard, PayPal and AT&T to develop the legislation.

First, the senators voted for it at a 100% rate. When was the last time SENATORS voted for the people? Ah yes, not once in decades.

Then all the big businesses... yeah big business sure love freedom...

Please call your people in January about this bill.
