DOPA 2006?

Recently the House of Representatives passed the Deleting Online Predators Act of 2006 or DOPA for short. Once this act becomes a law it would require schools and libraries that receive federal aid to block any website where children can be harmed by online predators. Here's a quote from an online discussion, "The law is so broadly defined that it would limit access to any commercial site that allows users to create a profile and communicate with strangers. This legislation is targeting MySpace, but it would also block numerous other sites, including blogging tools, mailing lists, video and podcast sites, photo sharing sites, and educational sites like NeoPets." Discussion: MySpace and DOPA


In this class we are using Class Blogmeister. I moderate it and wouldn't allow strangers to post on our blog, yet it would have to be blocked under the new DOPA 2006 law. We wouldn't be able to add our knowledge to wiki's even because other people could read it. What are your thoughts on this?
