MPAA Dismisses COICA Free Speech Concerns

An anonymous reader writes “The EFF has gone into detail about why it opposes ‘The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act,’ or COICA. It has the potential to give the Department of Justice the power to shut down any domestic website, or block any foreign website it so chooses, setting the stage for Internet censorship in the United States. Addressing the free speech concerns, MPAA chief Bob Pisano dismissed the First Amendment issues, saying ‘…the First Amendment was not intended as a shield for those who steal, irrespective of the means.’”
