From Paul Rapp in Metroland:

"This year there’s a new bill, the “"Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act", or the PROTECT-IP Act...

"...the rhetoric is all about how this scary bad internet thingee is stealing good American jobs and needs to be 'reined in'. Jobs! America! The bill is a slight improvement over COICA, but is largely the same highway to internet fascism, all in the name of saving those terrific record and movie companies that supply us with such an endless stream of uplifting and inexpensive entertainment products!"
