Combatting Online Infringements and Counterfeits (COICA) Act

 

                As of this writing (Nov. 16, 2010), Congress is apparently set to reconsider this Bill, which would have truly perverse and counter-productive effects on global Internet communications.  I have drafted a “Professor’s Letter” in opposition to the Bill, available here, which currently has around 50 signatories.  If you would like to sign on (and are an academic working in this general area), please contact me (David dot Post at Temple dot edu).  [A copy of the latest version of the Bill is AVAILABLE HERE].
