DEA and RIAA

This Techdirt entry opened a thought up to me. The article's last lines ask why the RIAA keeps suing company after company that is clearly protected by safe harbor laws within the DCMA. An it brought to mind the 'War on Drugs.' Both the RIAA and the U.S. government love to draw as much attention to themselves each time they make a minor movement forward in their own little personal war. In both situations, nothing ever changes. Drugs and ripped music continue to be freely available. The personal vendettas that the DEA and the RIAA have against their perceived threat serves only to hurt the people they claim to protect, and continue to highlight the continued existance of the items that they are trying to abolish. In either case the only result is a waste of time, manpower, and money. *sigh*

Faking Normality. The one place we don't do it. All is not well. The world is not coming to an end. Don't fake normality, achieve it.
