An ISP in New Jersey is fighting back against the RIAA and the Berman bill by:

  • Blocking its users from accessing the RIAA’s website
  • Setting up a honeypot to catch RIAA hacking attempts the same way you’d go after any other hacker

I wonder if this is just an isolated skirmish, or the first strike in a larger uprising that will eventualy lead to these inane bills being defeated?

What Century?

Here’s what’s going on in the 21st century
The New York Times is going to be giving same-sex marriages equal treatment on their Weddings page.

Here’s what’s going on in Nevada:
Ballot Question 2 will make same-sex marriages illegal in the state.

Now, which one of these seems like a step backwards?
