I am not surprised about this at all, the US government just WANTS the internet to be censored, we did our best to stop SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA, but they just keep coming up with another first amendment violating bill or policy.
Not to mention that it was really Hollywood and large companies themselves that gave people the tools to pirate movies, video games, and software. Piracy is one of those evils that can never be stopped.

The "mitigation records" sounds like they will clash with current FCC regulations.
I personally have no problem with this. This is certainly a better approach than the way it may have turned out with SOPA. The only problem I can see happening is if someone ends up flagged for piracy without actually pirating anything and then the ISP slows down his connection or blocks his access to the internet for no reason. Although that is unlikely to happen and I'm sure that it would be easy to straighten out if it did occur.
I'm still concerned if this would include images, because it sounds like they're gonna start monitoring into everyone's computers online while searching for copyrights.
Anyways, it's going to be fun dealing with the impending alarmist circlejerk fueled by inaccurate information.
People need to stop worrying about things that are already happening and not affecting our daily lives.
C'mon, Jack... You've had a death wish ever since Terri died. The way things have been going for you in the past year and a half, this probably doesn't look like such a bad idea. You get to go out in a blaze of glory, one of the greatest heroes of all time, leave your troubles behind... This could be the easy way out, huh? You still got a life, Jack. You wanna be a real hero? Here's what you do. You get back down there and you put the pieces together. You find a way to forgive yourself for what happened to your wife. You make things right with your daughter, and you go on serving your country. That'd take some real guts. ~ George Mason
I'm getting reports that these internet service providers are installing keyloggers on computers owned by government organizations such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, along with FBI and CIA servers.
...What in the name of god are they thinking?
