    "a pirating we will go"

    I was reading an article at Wired.com this evening.
    It seems this proposed SSSCA legislation will be covering software as well.
    If passed no new software could be legally distributed in the USA without the copyright infringement protections incorporated into it.
    What a freaking nightmare that would be -- no new Linux or anything without the mandatory crap.

    Damn good thing that the geeks run this planet instead of the politicians:thumb:

    They're pretty stupid if they think it's going to work that easy.

    Yeah, like the law enforcement agencies in the US haven't got enough to keep them busy already
