Trade associations representing US record attention interests this week pounded a new House of Representatives check directed during fighting supposed “rogue” websites, job it “an shocking step retrograde in internet policy” that would emanate “a underbrush of internet regulations containing 16 new authorised definitions for elaborating internet technology.”
Introduced final week, a bill, HR 3261, called a Stop Piracy Online Act, is dictated to boost powers of IP rights holders and law coercion to take down websites offered tawdry and pirated products (IPW, US Policy, 27 Oct 2011).
The tech companies contend it would criticise a formerly assembled change between rights holders and internet companies as good as user privacy.
“This is not a check that targets “rogue unfamiliar websites,” a minute said. “Rather, it allows film studios, unfamiliar oppulance products manufacturers, obvious and copyright trolls, and any hilt of any egghead skill right to aim official U.S. websites and record companies.”
