Should the Internet have an 'off' switch?

A raging debate over new legislation, and its impact on the Internet, has tongues wagging and fingers pointing from Silicon Valley to Washington, D.C.

Just as the Egyptian government recently forced the Internet to go dark, U.S. officials could flip the switch if the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset legislation becomes law, say its critics.

The story is too old to be commented.

Internet should not have an off switch. In fact it should be our right to have access to the internet as a source of information, connectivity (our free-speech rights), etc. Government want to control all aspect of our lives... including internet use... this is way to much...
