Baney, who is also senior advisor to the Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies (ASOP Global), said that the organization “strongly endorses the act…The bill’s requirement for registrars and registries to lock offending domain names within 24 hours of notification from a trusted notifier and suspend them within seven days would provide powerful new protections to keep consumers safe online.” She added, “The introduction of the act marks a major milestone in the fight against illegal online drug sales, and ASOP Global urges its swift passage in Congress.”
