    Any person who disables this policeware would be subject to five years in federal prison and a $500,000 fine.

    Wow.. To think that they could enforce that. I'm assuming they are talking about the omnivoure/ carnivoure program, right?

    Don't trust the goverment?!, they obviously don't trust you.

    Incredible.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    I've always wondered if Internet petitions are even legally admissable? Does anyone know because I know that there are certain criteria that an on paper petition must fulfil if it can be accepted legally.

    This has nothing to do with omnivore/carnivore etc. This is almost worse.... This is more about copyright. Along the same lines as the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) yet more intrusive.
