    Me neither just as Intel said, it would stiffle the market to much, plus it would let other markets gain in technological advancement over the US as well and I don't think that they would like that. ;)

    I don't see it passing but it shows that they are cooking up new ideas to bring us one more step into global "cattle branding" if you will

    That's the best answer I've seen, Darth.

    A pretty big task certainly - but not an impossible one if you are commited.

    Ok then for those who want to voice their opposition here is a petition for ya.
    This has only been cooked up by the Motion Picture Association of America with the help of a couple of lapdog senators though the U.S. House of Representatives doesn't seem to impressed with implementing this according to this article.
    Yep some of you may have seen these links plus others in the news post this morning. :smokin:

    Thanks for the linkage Wiggo!
    I'm not sure how worthwhile an online petition is (any lawyers in the house?), but in the hopes that it is kosher, I signed it.
    I encourage any other TT members of legal age, residing in the USA to do the same.

    I guess it can't hurt, as long as it doesn't put me on another spam list - and if it does, would I even notice.

    No need to run off D D.
    They don't even have enough prisons to begin to hold all the outlaws created by such a law:thumb:
