Now, this may be a good idea:
The basic idea: The law "would impose criminal or civil penalties on U.S. Internet companies that bow to pressure of foreign governments and violate human rights."
Still, this creates a cache-22. This would essentially bar US companies from competing in markets like China, which are huge. So would this put our companies at a long-term disadvantage?
Perhaps this law makes more sense if it applies to *ANY* company that operates in the US.
