Legal Big Content, which already owns the Obama administration, is at it again - I guess mandatory monitoring software to scan every computer's content isn't enough. A bi-partisan proposed bill would allow US federal courts to issue injunctions that would order domain registrars or registries to cease resolving the domain name of a copyright infringing website.

you sit back and wait for the US Government to accidentally infringe on your copyright

No you don't.

Unlike patents, copyright only covers actually copying other people's work. Independently discovering/writing a text is never copyright infringement - even if the text is identical to an existing copyrighted text.
