,----[ Quote ]
| A significant part of FCC Chairman Kevin Martin's legacy will be the moves he 
| made -- and tried to make -- to crack down on indecency while he was in 
| power. The FCC went after TV broadcasters with much more vigor than under 
| previous leaders, trying to impose big fines for "indecent" content, many of

| channels, rather than bundles.

Indian Court Wants To Ban Google Earth In The Wake Of Mumbai Attacks

,----[ Quote ]
| However, an Indian Court is now calling for the software to be banned saying
| that it "aids terrorists." Of course, so do maps or photographs of hotels,
| such as those placed online by the hotels themselves, but people aren't
| overreacting and calling for a ban of those things as well. Yes, we can
| understand the kneejerk reaction here, and the anger over these horrific
| attacks. But, banning Google Earth isn't the answer.
