Re: [dvd-discuss] Bad News...

No matter... the important thing will be to read, digest, and dissect 
what is written. What was the basis for the decision? Law or 
expediency? Or...are the issues too big for an appellate court ... 
my initial reaction reading 

"When the Framers of the First Amendment 
Congress from making any law "abridging 
the freedom of s eech," they
were not thinking about computers, 
computer progra s, or the
Internet. But neither were they thinking 
about radio, television,
or movies. Just as the inventions at the 
beginning a d middle of
the 20th century presented new First 
Amendment issues, so does the
cyber revolution at the end of that 

Is BULLSHIT thou intellectual cretin of grey matter solidified to 
brown and blowdried to white....they are NOT focussing on 
principles and so are missing the the essence...
