RE: [dvd-discuss] DoS attack on RIAA webstie

Yes....and what are the consequences when they go after a P2P network and 
are in the wrong! As O.W.Holmes Jr. observed, if the police are allowed to 
perform criminal acts to enforce the law, all that has been accomplished 
is a new class of criminal. If private companies are allowed to perform 
acts that would be criminal if performed by individuals, then all that has 
been accomplished is the creation of a protected class of criminals. 
So...you can bet there will be some shielding put up to protect them from 
the consequences of their actions.

If they can do this w/ merely an assertion, isn't 
due process violated?
