AT&T takes another step towards filtered network with investment in Vobile

,----[ Quote ]
| AT&T announced earlier this year that was planning to introduce content 
| filtering of some sort for all video passing across its network. Exactly what 
| AT&T was thinking remained unclear: would the company truly attempt to 
| reassemble the fragments of peer-to-peer transmissions, then extract video 
| from all sorts of different codecs, then attempt to match it-in real time-to 
| some database of copyrighted works? Would such a thing even be possible?     


>From the folks who censor the Web on behalf of a paranoid president who does
not undertand "teh internets and the google".
