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.

I didnt want to reply to this but i couldnt let this bs continue to be repeated. YOU DONT HAVE TO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE! Read the bill! do you know what the penalty is for not having it??? NOTHING thats right absolutely nothing. And believe me i know all about healthcare mandates I live in mass you lose $200 on your tax return for not having it.

from cnn

An adult who does not have health insurance by 2014 would be penalized $95 or 1 percent of income, whichever is greater, so long as the amount does not exceed the price tag of a basic health plan. But by 2016, the penalty increases to $695 for an uninsured adult, and up to $2,085 per household, or 2.5 percent of income, whichever is greater.

A person would also be penalized only if he or she went more than three months of the year without insurance.
