Anti-P2P law... 

Geeze.. I hope that this does not pass. While it doesn't out-law peer-to-peer software altogether, it puts enough roadblocks in place that it'd be extremely hard for any of them to operate. I mean seriously.. what if downloading a web browser required you to be a certain age and that you not have a special beacon installed on computer that says if can't install that kind of software? This is supposedly for protecting kids, but p2p is certainly not the only way to find objectionable material..

P2p can be used for legal distribution of any kind of material out there. These efforts to kill off an entire technology are getting kind of scary lately...
