Submission + - US Internet Censorship Legislation Steps Up (

deadbeatsaint writes: "Now being referred to as the "Son of the COICA" bill, and officially as as the PROTECT IP Act (based off of Senate Bill S.3804), this legislation adds a new proposal that Search Engines be required to block access to sites. This would be alongside credit card companies, ad-networks and ISPs. This Act would move the United States one step closer toward a level of Internet censorship, such as the one China currently enjoys."
