Censorship

Submission + - Web Censorship Sneaking into US (demandprogress.org)

DavidRawling writes: "According to Demand Progress, while we've all been concentrating on censorship moves in Australia, Iran and China (just to name a few), the US Senate has proposed censorship for the Internet within the USA.

Just the other day, President Obama urged other countries to stop censoring the Internet. But now the United States Congress is trying to censor the Internet here at home. A new bill being debated this week would have the Attorney General create an Internet blacklist of sites that US Internet providers would be required to block.

This is the kind of heavy-handed censorship you'd expect from a dictatorship, where one man can decide what web sites you're not allowed to visit. But the Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to pass the bill this week — and Senators say they haven't heard much in the way of objections! That's why we need you to sign our urgent petition to Congress demanding they oppose the Internet blacklist.

The stench of the hypocrisy is astonishing."

Spam

Submission + - Spamhaus not out of the woods yet with e360

David Rawling writes: Looks like Spamhaus are not out of the woods yet. e360 have published a new docket from the Illinois court suggesting that Spamhaus has lost all 3 of its recent motions.

From the docket:
Motion hearing held on 10/31/2006. As discussed in open court, defendant's motion [43] to vacate default judgment is denied. Defendant's motion [45] for a stay of enforcement of judgment pending appeal is denied. Defendant's motion [41] to quash citation to discover assets is denied. Defendant is ordered to comply with the citation to discover assets.
This comes just a few days after the court rejected a request to take Spamhaus' domain offline.
