Congressman Daryl Issa Proposes the Internet Moratorium Act 2012

U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA.) has released a draft of a new bill called the "Internet Moratorium Act 2012" on his web site Keep the Web Open. Issa was one of several members of congress strongly opposed SOPA. The bill will be appreciated by those who have opposed laws that add new regulations to the internet in the name of fighting piracy and cyber crimes because it aims to put a moratorium on such laws.

The bill would halt "new laws, rules or regulations governing the Internet" for a period of two years. We do not know if this would also apply to anything related to what the FCC has done like net neutrality rules…

You can read the document in its entirety at If you think this bill is a good idea, it can't hurt to let your elected representative(s) in Congress know that you support it and want them to support it too.
