Oh boy...this is the start of the government putting it's foot in the door of the Wild Wild West that is the Internet.  This could set a dangerous precedent.

Congress should be deciding something like this and not 5 members of the FCC...

This could have positive and/or negative repercussions, it's too early to tell.  However, people need not be all alarmist and think that the government all of a sudden is going to restrict what you can and cannot access like the Great Firewall of China.  This measure, in practice, does very little.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if something like this is thrown out by the sheer number of court challenges it could face.

I blame Wikileaks for accelerating this.  :P

Hasn't China already been doing this?

China has been doing it for quite some time now but on an infinitely "worse" scale.
