Website blocking to deal with alleged copyright infringement is like cutting off your hand to deal with a papercut.

The latest country to consider a website blocking proposal is Japan, and EFF has responded to the call for comment by sharing all the reasons that cutting off websites is a terrible solution for copyright violations.
