For those who don't remember - COICA is the bill that would effectively censor the net by allowing the Dept. of Justice to force ISP's to block a domain name from resolving to an ip address, in theory to prevent piracy and counterfeiting, but in practice? The wording is so vague it could go after anyone - up to and including Copyright Reform Advocates who support p2p file sharing, or anyone the government just doesn't like. (O HAI WIKILEAKS!)

Note: Edited to fix source link.
