             New protocol elements for HTTP Status Code 451
                draft-sahib-451-new-protocol-elements-01

Abstract

   This draft recommends protocol updates to Hypertext Transfer Protocol
   (HTTP) status code 451 (defined by RFC7725) based on an examination
   of how the new status code is being used by parties involved in
   denial of Internet resources because of legal demands.  Also included
   is an analysis of HTTP 451 from a human rights perspective using
   guidelines from RFC8280.

   Discussion of this draft is at https://www.irtf.org/mailman/listinfo/
   hrpc [1] and https://lists.ghserv.net/mailman/listinfo/statuscode451
