Comment: More than just the ISP (Score 1) 635

by digitallis (#5737247) Attached to: "Super-DMCA" Outlaws Ph.D. Thesis
Quote from Section 750.219a of the Michigan Compiled law:
"(a) "Telecommunications" and "telecommunications service" mean any service lawfully provided for a charge or compensation to facilitate the origination, transmission, retransmission, emission, or reception of signs, data, images, signals, writings, sounds, or other intelligence or equivalence of intelligence of any nature over any telecommunications system by any method, including, but not limited to, electronic, electromagnetic, magnetic, optical, photo-optical, digital, or analog technologies. "

Note: This means that any sort of comminication is defined as a "telecommunications service" If I give you a book, I have just provided you with a telco service. So, not only does this stomp on Web-related things, it also applies to that flyer you pinned to the public posting board while noone was looking.
