the “PROTECT IP Act of 2011″ is a new version of the COICA act, which would allow the federal government to sieze websites instantly. A stronger version of the law is “needed” because websites are currently able to move to new web addresses quickly and subvert the process. After this new law is passed, the administration can sieze websites instantly, and block their communications to the american viewers.

After the Attorney General decides that a website is illegal. The court produces a court order or injunction to be delivered to internet providers:

(D) An interactive computer service shall take technically feasible and reasonable measures, as expeditiously as possible, to remove or disable acess to the Internet site associated with the domain name set forth in the order, or a hyperlink to such Internet site.

Goodbye Wikileaks. Goodbye bittorrent files. Goodbye cheap Viagra.
We will be able to click on links, but nothing will happen.
The contents of the wikileaks website will become contraband in fact, Since the internet will be blocked from carrying it.

However, do you really think you have the right to view any website the Attorney General thinks is illegal?
