Um, no.

Los Angeles, and many communities here in California, do the same thing as Seattle as far as trash collection. Every home gets 3 bins: trash, recycle, and compost (which also includes yard trimmings). All three are collected by the city once a week and dealt with accordingly.

The stuff from the compost bins eventually finds its way back to stores as "California Compost".

I agree that it's an odd argument.

But I think I would say that almost every electronic device has a computer, but not all devices are computers.

I don't think I could convince very many people (at least, not non-techies) that my dishwasher, refrigerator, and washing machine should be referred to as "computers".

You're right. It'll be the lower level employees who most likely pay.

I work for a company that got hit with a FCPA violation years ago. We couldn't send anything out of the country without explicit State Department approval for years. It pretty much drove us to bankruptcy until we got bought by a bigger company with enough pull to ease the restrictions. One of the conditions is that *every* employee now has to have annual training on the FCPA.
