    They'll still do it. If I had a nickel for every time a gov't did something that was doomed to fail (and does) I'd not have to have my crappy job.

    You may want to stop taking all this lightly folks, even if Australia's method falls on its face, you're looking at the future of the Internet. It solves too many big problems for governments, ISPs, the recording industries, everybody, not to do everything they can to make it work.

    P.S, the above statement and opinion is not based solely on politics, though of course politics is in everything. There are many, many technical reasons too, bandwidth abuse being a huge one.
