    this law flew in the face of all principles of due process (well that doesn’t exist here, but a relative of it does) so it was pretty obvious that certain parts would be eviscerated.

    On a practical level even the judges have come out and stated that it’s a non-starter as the training and hiring requirements necessary to handle all of the disputes would be astronomical (read about 18,000 lawsuits per year).

    Finally add on top of that the amount of websites that discuss how to circumvent detection using todays technology for a law that won’t go into effect until 2011.

    This law was unfortunately used to appease a small part of the electorate and certain specific special interest groups.
