White House Administration looking for ways to block access to sites with infringing content

This story on Techdirt which was posted before the news of “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act” (COICA) being delayed was out, still shows that people concerned with the interplay of privacy, government control, trademarks and copyright infringement need to keep abreast of the shifting landscape.  White House Administrative staff has been meeting with domain registrars (among others) and talking about ways to block access to infringing sites.  I think it is an important goal to stop piracy and theft of intellectual property, I just want whatever procedures put in place to have proper due process to ensure that non-infringing or legitimate fair use works are not caught in the same “net”.
