California seeks to ban the Internet

In a brilliant move by California state senator Kevin Murray, a proposal was put on the table consisting of a state version of the federal INDUCE Act. BoingBoing puts is so well here. While we’re at it we should ban blogging, meat, and Hollywood and all sing around a campfire. Obviously Mr. Murray’s REAL reason is to turn Silicon Valley into a wasteland, and start a new super secret cult of luddites. Arnold should really terminate this guy.

…a law that proposed to make the very Internet itself illegal, for it bans producing, selling, offering, descirbing or building a network that can be used to share files unless “reasonable care” is taken to ensure that the files shared won’t infringe upon copyright. This, of course, includes email, IM, Web-browsers, and every other tool for exchanging data on the Internet. Nice one, Kevin!
