Journal TubeSteak's Journal: Abusive Laws

I'm going to quote an old post from the "DMCA Abuse Widespread" article:

Whenever a controversial law is proposed, and its supporters, when confronted with an egregious abuse it would permit, use a phrase along the lines of 'Perhaps in theory, but the law would never be applied in that way' - they're lying . They intend to use the law that way as early and as often as possible.

I'm sticking this here so that next time i want to quote these words, I won't have to go looking.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
