i know some will say it has its merits, but the fact is that most 'pirate' sites are located on servers outside the US, anyway. this does nothing but pave the way for selective government censorship of the internet. hello north korea.
Well, then we'll just be typing IP's instead of names.
Yeah, that's the really stupid thing about it - it doesn't stop you from accessing the site, just makes it harder.
Is there anything we non-Americans can do? Even as a Brit, I don't want this crap in America - it would suck for you guys, I have massive moral objections to it, and besides that our government is drooling over the prospect of internet censorship. If it comes to America they'd spin it as validation for censorship, and no doubt push forward with something similar here.

if they start doing this, i myself will register a site and keep a list of current IP's for banned sites posted. according to their law, i don't see how that could be illegal, i.e. the site exists for more than piracy, it's cataloging violations of the first amendment. block my domain, i'll spend five bucks and register a new one.
