More Unix Applied to Politics

Or it’s a really stupid idea to put colleges in the position of being legally obligated to support the RIAA and MPAA’s agendas. Colleges would be forced to develop “technology based solutions” relating to illegal downloading, and would apparently be pressured in some fashion to sign up for subscription based services. Schools that did not do this would theoretically be subject to loss of federal financial aid. The disproportionateness of this measure is staggering. (If the gag doesn’t make sense, try my earlier post on Unix and government).
