After dealing with some internal strife and remaining relatively silent for some time, the rogue movement Anonymous has launched a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against the U.S. Chamber of Commerce website.

The campaign was launched in protest of the Protect IP Act, a legislative proposal that would essentially cut off U.S. Internet users from accessing any website the government decides is blatantly in violation of copyright infringements, as well as any site that attempts to mirror the offender’s content.
