Denise Caruso reports today in the NYT on upcoming copyright
legislation that would prohibit circumventing any copyright
protection on digital works. Quote:

   Many products on the market would qualify for
   circumvention devices. These include software
   that allows systems managers to gain access
   to computers when users lose their passwords
   and any device used to test the strength of
   computer security -- products that cannot be
   tested without trying to break protection
   technology.

There's also a report on The WWW Consortium's vote a few days ago
to include the PICS standard for Web infrastructure and the vote's
import for censorship. The report notes that technologists are now
making decisions about public policy once dominated by lawyers, and
defending the self-serving practice much the same: it's for the
public good.
