Who needs free speech in the Internet? A few months ago I mentioned that the second district court is holding people accountable for what you say in comments of posts. Now Senator Joe Lieberman is trying to pass the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act (PCNAA). Instead of writing all about it I pulled in some information from Switched. It’s quite a shame and hopefully we stand up for our protection from government censorship.

Connecticut Senator, and chairman of the Homeland Security committee, Joseph Lieberman introduced legislation last week that would grant broad new emergency powers over the Internet to the federal government. The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act (PCNAA) would require broadband providers, search engines, and software companies to comply with emergency orders issued by the Department of Homeland Security under penalty of fine.
