Free speech is not only a part of the Bill of Rights, but it is one of the strongest political tools of the people. It does not just safe guard democracy–it is democracy. Measures like this would make it possible to “disappear” a web site like The Occupier from the Internet, just because it contains a link to a site perceived to encourage piracy. You can find more information about the repercussions of the bill here.
