    If the terrorists have a little bit of brains at all, they probably wouldn't meet on ICQ to chat about their plans. They would probably use something a little more sophisticated with high level encryption, anc considering today's technology it would be pretty hard for the FBI to understand any of it.

    My guess is that the FBI are doing this to make it easier to locate and prosecute high profile file sharers, which in itself is quite a worthy cause. Maybe not as important as preventing people from being blown to bits, but it's still a crime.

    This is only going to affect US internet providers though, right?

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

        I would like to state that I didn't cough up a lung laughing when I read this. I only came incredibly close. Giggles like this are good for your health. Thank you floris.
