Piracy runs rampant on the Internet, but Daniel Castro says it doesn’t have to be this way. He wants the US government to start creating a blacklist of Internet sites; once approved by a judge, each site would be cut off from American Internet users at the Domain Name System (DNS) level, where readable locations like “arstechnica.com” are turned into numerical IP addresses. US-based credit card companies would be forbidden from doing any business with the site, and US-based advertising networks couldn’t serve ads to the site.
If my site was taken down illegally by the federal government, I would complain very loudly. And we haven’t heard that from the ones who were taken down. I think they know they were engaging in illegal activity, and some people have said they’ve stopped.
Castro, a senior analyst at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), coauthored a 2009 paper on Internet piracy (PDF) that included many of the ideas that found their way into COICA.
