Comment: Kind of like that iPod law? (Score 1) 578

Hmmm. In 20006 France passed the iPod law, which was covered here on Slashdot. However, parts of that law after it was passed were struck down. All governments have crazy laws, most of which are old and need to be updated. I disagree with the law, however it was put into place for an obvious reason. The problem is with the Internet, online sales and the general economy small mom and pop stores all over the world are being harmed. I do not think this law will save those stores anymore and as all old laws I'm sure this one will take years to get off the books.
