    LOL those two US lawmakers are MORONS! Guess they are up for re-election and need the "big bad UN" boogie man to scare the voters into voting for them.

    The UN has zero, nada, and every other nothing word on the planet... authority nor treaty wise mandate to do anything remotely what these two morons think they can do.

    They should be more worried about how their own fellow congressmen are conspiring to censor the internet in the US with industry backed legislation to hit down on "pirates" by limiting access for people in general.
