  1. Obama has made sure this first term that there would be no questioning of his national security “toughness” or his willingness to strictly enforce intellectual property rights. And the mutual and mimetic relationship between the Israel and US is very apparent.

  2. RE: “Where do they plan to put him when they get him: Guantanamo?” ~ R.S.

    MY COMMENT: Shhh, don’t give them any ideas. The next thing you know, they will declare him an “unlawful enemy combatant” in the Global War on Copyright Infringement!

  3. The internet is becoming obsolete, Richard. The people must always be in control of their communications. This will never change, no matter how many plans these crackheads put together.

  4. My intuition tells me that the Justice Department is going after O’Dwyer because he’s a relatively soft target and it wants to make an example of him. (It’s the same reason the RIAA goes after ordinary listeners and not the technology companies that have actually profited from not-at-all-‘free’ music downloads.)

  5. Just watch: they will find O’Dwyer guilty, O’Dwyer will appeal, and some more rational judge will shoot the government down. The judicial system (except for the Supreme Court) seems to be leery of the authoritarianism of the executive office; we need to have a constitutional convention to decide once and for all just how much power we are willing to put in the hands of the President. Leave the banana republics to our allies.
