Hi folks. I hold no allegience to any political party, but I do like to keep my ear to ground on political issues – particularly those that involve our technologicaly-challenged elected officials becoming the tools of old-media. The “Internet Stopping Adults Facilitating the Exploitation of Today’s Youth Act” is one such moment were I feel the need to comment.
It’s not “for the children,” it’s for copyright holders who are grasping on to a dead business-model. These folks are using elected officials, who have no real education on technological issues to mandate that people who provide wifi access points to keep user logs for 2 years. If you don’t know what the heck that means and you have a wireless router in your home – congratulations, if these laws pass then you’ve just become a criminal.
