That's not government law giving them a monopoly, it's a physical law that's getting in the way. Too much Seattle population decided it was better to move than rewire the city, which is why they blew up the King Dome on a classic ESPN Classic broadcast.

Comcast has a lock on setting up a separate cable system in town, but let ma bell in by linking to the phone network. It's Big Cable v. Ma Bell v,.DBS... all three work, it's a triopoly because there's three.
There's DirecTV and Dish Network available in most places, and Comcast and Time Warner don't overlap, even in NYC where there's a line drawn between the two. FIOS is being offered where Verizon thinks it's possible, and AT&T U-Verse exists where it was set up.
You have to get this down to one before you can call it a monopoly.
A claim of civil disobedience doesn't lead to a not guilty verdict.
What source of randomness would you use for such a branch? In an era where there's too many rigged elections, how do you expect your randomness to be fair?
This is as old as the Roman Era governments... a democracy requires everybody to vote on everything, a republic selects representatives/senators to vote as an assembly.
He sent an e-mail to the president's website declaring he was going to do it, and assuming that generated permission to fly in a zone where a baseball home run isn't even allowed.
HT-1 only accepts mail that's been cleared at a non-talked-about facility. It's gotta come from the right clearance to get there. There are many "downtown" post offices that only accept one truck route, and only go outbound by that same truck route.
That's like e-mailing the home address of a CEO to get a store employee to do something. BarackObama.com was one of his campaign sites.. government business happens at whitehouse.gov instead.
Yes, because flying to the Capitol region is a no-fly zone. Trips up//down the East Coast have always had to go around Washington.
Doing his job wrong.... he's supposed to drop that mail off at a mail processing facility, not the Capitol itself.
Suspect: I'm going to deliver some mail by Gyrocopter on the west lawn of the capitol buliding. Here's my ID and flight plan.
Spook: Uhm, that's a no-fly zone...
Suspect: Thanks for letting me do this.
Spook: We'll have plenty of capitol police around you when you get there.
The US Government doesn't accept mail at sites anymore... they download it from Earth Class Mail.
The Google and Bing bots do... who's publishing a crawl of the web that doesn't?
robots.text is a note to Google and Bing to stop. It doesn't stop a web browser, but you can't be found in the search engines.
FISA creates a "sealed record"... they'll have to reveal it eventually if they want to use it in other courts.
