Lamar Smith has a new, even more terrifying bill called the “Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act”, which would require ISPs to log ALL of your transactions you make online for up to 18 MONTHS on the premise of catching child pornographers.This bill far over-reaches even the danger level of SOPA and PIPA, and it has already passed through its committee.
Below are relevant articles containing information about the bill:
This bill is in strong violation of the 4th Amendment’s unlawful search and seizure writ, and should be immediately and permanently removed from the docket under such grounds. Other means of stopping child pornographers are readily available without having to treat every citizen as guilty by logging their internet behaviour and looking for “guilty” actions. This bill grants an utterly unreasonable amount of power to government agencies and ISPs to police through the elimination of personal privacy, and this is utterly unacceptable.
That’s why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate, which says:
“We’re calling for an immediate indefinite postponement of the upcoming vote on PCFIPA . This bill is in strong violation of the 4th Amendment’s unlawful search and seizure rights, and should be immediately and permanently removed from the docket under such grounds. ”
Something ELSE to keep an eye on in addition to ACTA, PIPA & SOPA
