Security Experts Opposed PROTECT IP Act

The law professors who expressed their disapproval for the PROTECT IP Act are now followed by security experts, lining up to oppose the proposed legislation. They claim that new law would destabilize the web and harm cyber security efforts.

PROTECT IP Act, also known in file-sharing circles as “The Great Firewall of America”, is being lively discussed by law professors and security experts today, with most of them saying that the law will only serve to make matters worse for everyone. Security experts recently released a report saying that the PROTECT IP Act would be bad for both cyber security and online stability. In addition, the legislation would only serve to make matters worse for those attempting to stop copyright violation.

First of all, the American government has identified online security and stability as an important part of a wider cyber security strategy. So, if the PROTECT IP Act is enforced, its DNS-related provisions would weaken this key commitment. Meanwhile, DNS filters will be evaded easily, which can be considered ineffective at fighting copyright infringement. Moreover, widespread circumvention would also threaten the security and stability of the worldwide DNS.

Further, the DNS provisions of the PROTECT IP Act would undermine the universality of domain names, cause migration away from ISP-provided DNS servers, and so on. In other words, if implemented, new anti-piracy legislation would weaken web security by institutionalizing the network manipulation that encourages cyberattacks and other malevolent behaviour in the web.

Apparently, once the United States starts filtering the web, users will find ways of bypassing these filters by changing their DNS server to an unfiltered version, which would fragment the web soon enough, since everyone’s DNS won’t be universal any more. As for the anti-piracy effect, this would be a doubtful one, because while someone types BitTorrent tracker address in and gets an anti-piracy warning, someone else would type the same thing in and gets the actual site instead. Thus, anti-piracy outfits will never know for sure if consumers are able or unable to access the site – if people want to download the last Harry Potter movie, they will always find a way to do so, and no Internet filtering or protocol blocking will stop it.
