Legal Another article on intellectual property enforcement? Yes, since I consider this to be the most important struggle technology has to face over the coming decade. We already know that content providers don't care one bit about hard-fought concepts like freedom and privacy, but the joint proposals by the RIAA and MPAA to the US Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator really blew my brains out: monitoring software installed on people's computers, border inspections - it's all there, and then some.

Get the Tea Party riled up by saying that RIAA/MPAA is a government agency out to raise taxes on music and movies. Illegal search and seizure!

The "paranoid government conspiracy freaks" will jump all over the "install software monitoring checks".

And.. The rest of us sane, technically enlightened folk will just say no.
