CNN.com - Senator: Trash illegal downloaders' PCs - Jun. 18, 2003

  • From: Richard Irving
  • Date: Wed Jun 18 16:54:26 2003

 Just to continue the discussion of the RIAA
oriented Laws, and how they seem to supersede
American Constitutional rights....

 Haven't these people heard of Multi-User
Systems ?

Excerpt:

 "Senator: Trash illegal downloaders' PCs"

<http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/internet/06/18/download.music.ap/index.html>

 I think these people think gross infringements will be
prevented by the Constitution. They keep forgetting
that the USA Patriot attempts to -=supersede=- your basic
constitutional protections, in such matters.

 As such, basic constitutional rights have -=no=- protection
from -=Patriot=-..... or, subsequent Electronic legislation.

(AFAICT)
