Internet & Networking Supposedly we've won today. Both the PROTECT-IP Act in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act in the House of Representatives have been shelved by their respective sponsors. However, these acts have been shelved before, and the bags of money sent to DC didn't suddenly devalue, so I'm sure the next SOPA is being written as we speak. What did make me happy, though, was Neelie Kroes: the EU commissioner for the digital agenda has unambiguously distanced herself from SOPA, which she calls "bad legislation". Obama, the next time you want to make a statement with teeth, just wait for Kroes to do it for you.

Or just work on getting root DNS servers out of US jurisdiction


Root servers I, K and M are not under US jurisdiction and they're all anycast.
Unfortunately the US Department of Commerce is still controlling the actual root zone but it would be relatively trivial, if the need should arise, for the non-US root servers to just use a different root.
