Senator Leahy's Protect IP Act
would require that U.S. ISPs impose an 'internet death penalty' upon domain after merely a preliminary injunction from a U.S. court that suspects the site of being 'dedicated to infringing activities', even if the domain's owner had never been notified and was not subject to U.S. jurisdiction. There is concern that the legislation would fragment the DNS system and facilitate DNS spoofing
by obstructing DNSSEC
). There is also an open letter
opposing the bill signed by 108 Law Professors who study intellectual property law.
Leahy's previous attempt called COICA
died in committee in 2010.
