Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) says that Congress must not interfere with Internet service providers that are trying to filter pirated content from their networks. "I believe the best chance we have for achieving any success against digital piracy is to allow those entities and individuals who manage networks to have the flexibility and agility to take necessary and lawful steps to stop piracy online before it starts," said the widow of singer Sonny Bono, who recently took on the new last name when she married fellow Republican congressman Connie Mack of Florida. "The battle against digital piracy is a very fluid exercise. Network operators and digital-property owners should be free to experiment with and develop antipiracy technologies."
