I think this is what they are shoot'n for.  (ack... bad pun.) They want to be 
judge, jury, and executioner. I think (hope) any judge would throw this out 
as unconstutional because it violates due process. If it passes it will at 
least give them a window of opportunity to whack a few websites before they 
get sued. What the mainstream press says might get interesting if the RIAA 
whacks a "pirate"  and takes a chunk out of AOL/Time Warners' network at the 
same time. They need to watch out who they make mad, the script kiddies are 
one thing, I'd hate to know I had a few pros after me. 

What do you want bet that these attacks get labeled as "terrorism".
