| someone's phone line because the movie industry makes an allegation that a 
| user is pirating.

| the copyright act — ISPs are merely common carriers of traffic and the fight

| ads on TV and, as a complement, bring ad dollars to networks that don't 
| normally have broad recognition.

Network Civilization: Peer-to-Peer and the Rise of Green Capitalism

,----[ Quote ]
| Just as the three quarters of oil engineers now agree that Peak Oil is in
| sight within the next decade (after that, oil production can only decline),
| can we also posit that we may have reached a moment of Peak Hierarchy, a
| moment in history in which it is no longer large centralized organizations
| that are most efficient or productive, but rather those that are organized as
| distributed networks and can draw on peer producting communities?
