Not sure it would work if users have to depend on governments to respect their rights.
Without some means for self enforcement its just another piece of digital paper to ignore.

Somewhere, James Madison is saying, "Good luck with that".

Because if it's one thing Al Gore knows, it's that the government that governs least is the government that governs best.

I got almost prisoned by following 'advice' from an (un)friendly spy/bot/criminal and/or some thinktank(s)
despite having SEVERAL health-issue (and psychological ones).. I did also spend and lost alot of time and software/hardware/information which had not been fully returned.

told me to get emule (it was very late at night and i wasn't really bright caus of that time of day), beside being filled with spyware/bloated it also refused to disallow sharing, which led to this problem...

he told me to use a char string(letters) which will get me what is far more troubling than pirated software(and sharing the world with it)  again, if eMule was being SANE -- it wouldn't have acted this way(and I am not the 1st to say that!) what followed was me 'knowingly' breaking the law.

Lesson is: Never be off your guards, if your not awake/ready to react -- just close that laptop lid or that PC off, no chatroom or chatter, software or info is worth prison-time.

You R Jailed, UR Keyboard is away from you -- Abort, Retry, Ignore ? .. Anyone? .. Hello?

People who talk like that, meet with unfortunate accidents.

How about using HTTPS (SSL) for every web page access?

Now we just need a way to encrypt URL parameters, so the NSA can't tell what you're searching for in Google Images.
