    "Now you just know some simple critter in congress will introduce this as law in America !"
    My bet is it will be that idiotic Florida Rep. Wexler !


    Paris - Anyone who persists in illicit downloading of music or films will be barred from broadband access under a controversial new law that makes France a pioneer in combating internet piracy. ''There is no reason that the internet should be a lawless zone,'' President Sarkozy told his Cabinet yesterday (Snip) Under a cross-industry agreement, internet service providers (ISPs) must cut off access for up to a year for third-time offenders.

    Are they going to ban Google Images, Youtube, all the news compilation services, MySpace, Facebook, and a myriad of other websites that provide copyrighted material free of charge?

    No? I didn't think so.

    I sometimes wonder if that is the point. The law is passed, they struggle to enforce it, so need new powers, allegedly to enforce it. But these new powers also have secondary effects, letting them snoop in other ways.

    Makes you think...
