>IDG News saw the draft text of the Internet section last week, but the

>Internet filtering (not allowed to be a requirement), "three strikes" 
>policies (encouraged but not mandatory), takedown procedures (required), 
>and ISP safe harbors (also required). 
>If the bill sounds much like existing American law, it should; the US

>unsurprisingly, the leaked document takes the DMCA worldwide.
