    The U.S. Government is determined to put an end to online piracy. In an
    attempt to give copyright holders and the authorities all the tools
    required to disable access to so-called rogue sites, lawmakers will soon
    introduce the PROTECT IP Act. Through domain seizures, ISP blockades,
    search engine censorship, and cutting funding of allegedly copyright
    infringing websites, the bill takes Internet censorship to the next
    level.

    There is also mention of the Death Penalty for Pirating movies etc, or
    may be shipping you to Guantanamo Bay.
