Well, this doesn't look good at all.

The controversial PROTECT IP Act unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Committee two weeks ago.

When the PROTECT IP Act becomes law U.S. authorities and copyright holders will have the power to seize domains, block websites and censor search engines to prevent copyright infringements.

http://torrentfreak.com/kill-the-protect-ip-act-110607/ Or is it illegal for me to link to a domain with the word torrent in it yet? I'm not sure.

protect-ip-copyright-bill-faces-growing-criticism

Senator blocks controversial copyright bill

"Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, has placed a hold on the bill, saying Protect IP takes an "overreaching approach to policing the Internet when a more balanced and targeted approach would be more effective." That hold could be defeated through a cloture vote, a significant hurdle but not an insurmountable one."
