Internet "Kill Switch" proposed for Obama
Posted 6/18/10
I stumbled upon this not too long ago. it seems that a future Senate bill might come soon that allows the President to have control [portions of] the internet.


A new Senate bill, sponsored by Senator Joseph Lieberman, proposes to give the president the authority "to seize control of or even shut down portions of the Internet," according to CNET.

The authority granted to the government in the bill, known as the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act (PCNAA), has been likened to an Internet "kill switch."

The bill would require that private companies--such as "broadband providers, search engines, or software firms," CNET explains--"immediately comply with any emergency measure or action" put in place by the Department of Homeland Security, or else face fines.

It hasn't passed yet I think and Obama didn't propose the idea, but it'll be a problem if he's given control to shut down anything on the web that's considered a threat for other people. I'm not sure if they should pass this bill. Do you think Obama should be granted to do this?

lock if it's a duplicate or if its violating the rules.

This is a dupe, I'm sure I read it already in the forums, but can't be bothered to find the original
