Legal "The U.S. government has attempted to obtain the master encryption keys that Internet companies use to shield millions of users' private Web communications from eavesdropping. These demands for master encryption keys, which have not been disclosed previously, represent a technological escalation in the clandestine methods that the FBI and the National Security Agency employ when conducting electronic surveillance against Internet users." Well. "And where once you had the freedom to object, think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillence coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission."

You do understand that Slashdot links to the same article at Cnet, and copies the same intro, right? The rest of the item here is copied from a movie.

You really do not understand this? Seriously?

Wow, you think there are other editors lazier than slashdot's? That's like, a whole new level of laziness heretofore unknown to science. You could win a Nobel for that kind of a discovery.
