TIPO's Press Release
There was a controversial SOPA-like bill proposed by Taiwan Intellectual Property Office (TIPO) last year, which authorized TIPO to block websites from other jurisdictions if it deems the role of website in contributing copyright infringement is "obvious." The bill was withdrawn due the severe opposition from online communities and significant coverage in media.
