    Doesn't that mean the uploader of something illegal can't be wiretapped before the law is passed? I think it says in the constitution that you can't get in trouble for something that was legal when you did it but I'm not sure if that would apply here. They are going to have there hands full though since there are many US warez uploaders out there.

    The government has too much time on it's hands.

    Under federal law, wiretaps may only be conducted in investigations of serious crimes, a list that was expanded by the 2001 Patriot Act to include offenses such as material support of terrorism and use of weapons of mass destruction. The administration is proposing to add copyright and trademark infringement, arguing that move "would assist U.S. law enforcement agencies to effectively investigate those offenses."


    You know what... if the NWO comes to fruition, we deserve it.

    George W. Bush enacted several laws which clearly go against the original constitution written by America's forefathers. This patriot act is one of them.

    They will soon break down the doors to your house without warrants. Mark my words.
