Copyright and Security

Two posts in one day...Unusual, I know, but I am trying to catch up.

For anyone keeping track, thanks to questionable business practices by Verizon based on the Government's abuse of liberty, there are now 83 words you can't use. Speaking of domestic surveillance, a Federal Court in California has consolidated the litigation surrounding the President's NSA program. The impact of the President's policies can be seen in other areas, too. Especially considering this recent decision by a New York Court permitting police to search patron's bags on the subway. Then again, the extent of the President's interest in national security is becoming questionable.

In other news, there have been some interesting developments with the RIAA and their assault on copyright law and the individual end user. First, one perspective on the truth. Second, a calculated move to keep the public in the dark. Finally, an interesting attack on the RIAA's policies.

On a final note, the CEO of Google has some interesting words on Net Neutrality.
