Obama Internet "Kill Switch" Bill Approved

Recommended Posts

The US senators pushing a controversial new bill that some fear would give President Barack Obama the powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet have rejected claims it would give Obama a net "kill switch".

 

The bill, titled Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, has been unanimously approved by the US Homeland Security committee and will be put to a vote on the Senate floor shortly....

The senators rejected the "kill switch" claim, arguing that the President already had authority under the Communications Act to "cause the closing of any facility or station for wire communication" when there is a "state or threat of war".

You cant "shut down" the internet. It would just require certain websites be taken down in certain cases.

Every website isnt based off of a server in the US guys. Sorry to break it to you.

 

Regardless the US shutting down their servers wouldnt be all that great for the rest of us.
