The bill, known as the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade, or OPEN Act, provides an alternative to the controversial PROTECT Act currently under consideration in the Senate, and the SOPA, or Stop Online Piracy Act, in the house.
Those two Acts have been criticized for their plan to completely change the architecture of the internet in addition to imposing a censorship regime on all internet content.
