HiSciFi – EFF on US Gov’t Sovereign Immunity for Wiretapping, Plus The Sad Sad World of The Pirate Bay


by Irma Arkus

Admittedly, I am crushed. The recent decision to pronounce the Pirate Bay owners guilty of crimes (what crimes, do tell?) something akin to “aiding and abbeting” to distribution of copyright materials, has me reeling in pain. I sat down in the studio on Friday and could not believe my eyes when I read the verdict.

That aside, glum news are neverending, so we decided to also bring you the latest updates of the EFF case files: they have a pending lawsuit against the Bush administration and FBI, but since the fun never ends, we also find out the dark side of the Obama administration work, as well as get the goods on some outrageous warrants issued for a Boston College student’s posssessions. It appears that the world is made up of either very old, or probably, and more likely, very ignorant people, who suffer from severe case of ephiphobia, as well as allergies to digital technology in general.

Either way, tune in and get some popcorn and tissues…

Also in the news, we cover COWS, and use of fiber optics in brain tissue! Ta da!
