RIAA Legal Ruling Could Shut Down The Internet

http://prisonplanet.com/articles/no...106shutdown.htm

"U.S. government supports legal case that would criminalize making any files available on the world wide web"

Yes, I'd agree that the title is, or sounds, sensationalistic (in that it's doubtful this will 'shut down' the internet), but it is still an interesting bit of news that should be looked into, especially because this indeed could push the 'Internet 2' agenda further ahead. I thought that this should make for a good discussion, and that its fairly relevant.

It also might help to read this as well: http://www.defectivebydesign.org/node/404

This, too: Spanish judge rules file sharing legal http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/1...nloading_legal/

Draw your own conclusions.

Remember: 'When you pirate mp3's, you're downloading communism!' (or if you prefer a different, more modern term, terrorism).
