Cybersquatting & Domain Dispute Lawyer Attorney Law Firm - United States Proposes Legislation to Regulate Use of Domain Names for Illegal Activities

Seeing how hostile American politicians of either party are to allowing a global consumer market place to blossom, this is bad news. Consider Russian music sites: just like manufacturers take advantage of lax labor/environmental laws and currency exchange rates, Russian download sites allow consumers to take advantage of lax copyright laws and the purchasing power of euros/dollars. They're objectively legal by the same standards outsourcing is, but the copyright barons cry fowl - and our government is sympathetic to their cries. This tool will only make it easier for companies to use government power to shut down legal competition to American business - on mere suspicion, throwing the burden on the accused to redeem themselves.
