Submission + - McCain on Net Neutrality, Copyright, Iraq

An anonymous reader writes: Sen. John McCain kicked off the All Things Digital conference Tuesday night with some interesting comments about net neutrality among other things.

HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
I HAS A VAR
GIMMEH VAR

        YA RLY

                VISIBLE "BIG NUMBER!"
        NO WAI
                BTW this is false
                VISIBLE "LITTLE NUMBER!"
        KTHX
KTHXBYE"

Submission + - Life Imprisonment for Copyright Infringement

ronadams writes: "P. Parameswaran writes in his AFP article:

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said he proposed comprehensive legislation to Congress Monday against copyright thieves, including raising the maximum penalty to life imprisonment and seizing the illicit profits of offenders.
Nick Ferrel at the Inquirer confirms the reports and adds a few interesting insights of his own. Good to know RIAA is a vital part of the US Government. I must have been asleep when my Government & Law professor glossed over that one."
