I mentioned & referenced the history of copyright in my previous post.  One thing that nearly always prevailed in the copyright wars of past was that it was the publishers/distributors/media companies/RIAA/MPAA that were always pushing for more regulation & enforcement, longer copyrights & stricter control of the medium (i.e., the Internet).

Take a look at this article @ Wired, “Cyberwar Hype Intended to Destroy the Open Internet“.  If Michael McConnell succeeds in scaring the government (as he’s apparently done in the past), we’ll now have both industry AND the government trying to “secure” the Internet.  After all… it’s for our own good…  ya know what I mean?

Anywho’s… it’s an interesting read.
