OPEN: Online Protection & ENforcement of Digital Trade Act

Bill Passage

(i) IN GENERAL. Subject to clause (ii), a financial transaction provider shall take reasonable measures, as expeditiously as reasonable, designed to prevent or prohibit the completion of payment transactions by the provider that involve customers located in the United States and the Internet site associated with the domain name subject to the order issued under subsection (f).

Comment

"Reasonable measures" and "expeditiously as reasonable" are ambiguous and subject to interpretation. The ambiguity invites unequal application of the action based on subjective criteria.
