A bipartisan alternative to controversial anti-piracy bills now before Congress is being floated online by a handful of senators and representatives.

The Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade ( _OPEN_ ) Act would treat online piracy or counterfeiting by foreign websites as an unfair trade practice under the Tariff Act of 1930 and would give enforcement authority to the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Absent from the draft act are DNS blocking provisions included in the House’s Stop_Online_Piracy_Act and the Senate's Protect_IP_Act . Opponents in the Internet community say those provisions are incompatible with DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC), a set of cryptographic protocols intended to secure the Domain Name System.
