"The news has been buzzing around for the last couple of days that 
Representative Berman, whose palm has been crossed with silver by the 
entertainment industry, would introduce a bill permitting copyright holders 
to hack or DoS people allegedly distributing their works without 
permission. Well, the bill has been introduced - read it and weep. Although 
the bill wouldn't allow copyright owners to alter or delete files on your 
machine, they would be allowed to DoS you in essentially any other way. Let 
me restate that: the MPAA and RIAA are asking that they be allowed to 
perform what would otherwise be federal and state criminal acts and civil 
torts, and you will have essentially no remedy against them under any laws 
of the United States. "    (03)
