Yes, It really is a Democrat War on the Internet

On November 5, 2009, in General, by Neil Stevens

It’s not just treaties and regulations that the Democrats are using to wage war on the Internet as we know it. They’re not above using laws, too:

Internet service providers may become legally responsible for scam web sites and spam that passes over their lines if a new piece of legislation, the Investor Protection Act, gets turned into law. The act, which passed through the House Financial Services Committee today, requires ISPs to filter fraudulent sites and emails that falsely claim to be from certain brokerage firms affiliated with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) if the ISP is “aware of facts or circumstances from which it is apparent that the material contains a misrepresentation.” If the communications are not blocked, ISPs could be liable for damages.

This is incredibly stupid. We don’t hold the USPS liable for mail fraud. ISPs should be no different.
