The law only governs the manufacture of phones. It provides no guidance or penalty for possession of an 'unapproved' phone. If Bush were still in office, I would expect to see a division of the Department of Homeland Security created to monitor cell phone pictures, but...
Besides, if a bill is passed that says all cars manufactured after 2010 have to get at least 100 mpg, that doesn't mean that every other car has to leave the road. Eventually all of the older cars will stop working and only the high mileage cars will be left. Similarly, when all of the 'predatory' phones meet their demise, only the 'safe' phones will be left.
The real question is, why the hell is Congress wasting time with this tripe? Is this supposed to fix the economy?
From the article: "Krawetz was also able to determine that the writing on the banner behind al-Zawahiri's head was added to the image afterward. In the second picture above showing the results of the error level analysis, the light clusters on the image indicate areas of the image that were added or changed. The subtitles and logos in the upper right and lower left corners (IntelCenter is an organization that monitors terrorist activity and As-Sahab is the video production branch of al Qaeda) were all added at the same time, while the banner writing was added at a different time, likely around the same time that al-Zawahiri was added, Krawetz says." Why would Al-Qaeda add an IntelCenter logo to their video? Why would IntelCenter add an Al-Qaeda logo? Methinks we have bigger fish to fry than Gonzo and his fired attorneys... }:-) The article contains links to Krawetz's presentation and the source code he used to analyze the photos."
Is this an indication of more anti-piracy screwups to come? It seems that we're past the point of anti-piracy measures being only inconvenient for pirates, so now that legitimate users are being affected will they start to look for other OS options?"
