Okay, usually I am not moved by anything that has to do with Government, but when I heard about COICA I had to post this.
To my understanding, Basically the government will have two blacklists. Read the link or if you know what it is sign the petition to try to prevent this from being passed. Chances are, it will be passed and the internet will cease to be fun. Not to mention websites with anything that is up without the persons consent will be die. Say good bye too all the streaming websites and 4chan.
I don't want to go into the details because I do not fully understand it yet and chances are that this will be passed. I just wish they would see that this is exactly what China and Iran do with their internet. HURRAY FOR OPPRESSION.
