INTERNET FREEDOM: Bill Would Curb Exports of Spyware. “A bill that would restrict U.S. exports of technology that can be used by repressive regimes to censor the Internet or conduct surveillance on users will be introduced in the House soon. The sponsor, Rep. Chris Smith (R., N.J.), said the proposed legislation is in response to reports that some governments have used American products to crack down on dissidents.”

Is it just me, or is Congress better on Internet freedom abroad than it is about Internet freedom at home?
