Yeah it is dumb; was it here where people discussed Orrin Hatch's plan to make a virus that would destroy the computers of music sharers?
Although, I doubt this will pass; if it did, in the US it would mean that the following would be outlawed if by the bill if the goverment felt like it:
ALL Storage Devices: Flash drives, Hard Drives, CD-R(W), DVD[+-]R(W), zip, Jaz, etc
ALL Computer networks, including the Internet, wireless and LANS
All cellphones with the ability to record visual or audio information
Any radio with a cassette recorder built into it.
Anyways, for the people who live in the US, you can use this to protest it: http://action.eff.org/action/index.asp?step=2&item=2918
This is the completely wrong approch to stop copyright problems.
