Interesting - who said that DMCA or the Communications Decency Act or the

unmentionable tech companies, but basically against the free flow of

development. Probably news.com wants to rally the vote of the techies for
Bush.... If they buy that, they truly deserve another tech-slump, which
started if memory serves me right, round the time GWB got an election...
according to the methodology they used to calculate this, you had to vote
_against_ the dmca, cda, or patriot act in order to gain "tech friendly"
