U.S. Senate Hearing on seizing websites – 2/16
In contrast to Feb 15’s Hillary Clinton speech about Internet Freedom on Feb. 16 2011, the Senate Committee on the Judiciary held a hearing entitled “Targeting Websites Dedicated To Stealing American Intellectual Property“. This was a followup to last year’s shelving of the COICA Act and the recent DHS-ICE site seizures – which some consider to be of dubious legality. Witnesses include representatives of the Authors Guild, Go Daddy, Verizon, and Visa. There was be a webcast.
