Net freedom

Republican Congressman Christopher Cox has introduced a bill into the US Senate called the Global Internet Freedom Act. The aim? "To adopt an effective and robust global Internet freedom policy" and "to establish an office within the International Broadcasting Bureau with the sole mission of countering Internet jamming and blocking by repressive regimes."

The Committee to Protect Bloggers supports the Act, so maybe worth a look. Then again, Orange Country Congressman Cox was recently appointed by George W. Bush as the next Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, so caution is probably advisable. The White House offers a handy CV so if readers can find a good reason why the Act shouldn't be supported, leave them in comments.
