This is good!

"Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suggested Tuesday that people who download copyright materials from the Internet should have their computers automatically destroyed.

But Hatch himself is using unlicensed software on his official website, which presumably would qualify his computer to be smoked by the system he proposes.

The senator's site makes extensive use of a JavaScript menu system developed by Milonic Solutions, a software company based in the United Kingdom. The copyright-protected code has not been licensed for use on Hatch's website."

His site: www.senate.gov... has been getting hammered... and we can probably expect to see something from the so-called "socially conscious hackers" sometime soon.

Hatch's office reports having received hundreds of telephone calls and e-mails, mostly critical, following the senator's call for remote destruction of pirates' PCs and the subsequent revelation about unlicensed software on his own Web site.
Meanwhile, Hatch's Web site linked to the pro-tourism www.myutahsearch.com, which was hacked and redirected on Friday to a pornography site . Hatch's staff quickly removed the link, but traffic to the site itself still was being redirected at mid-day.

This is REALLY old news. I'll see if I can find the thread and post the link as an edit.

EDIT: I agree, hilarious! And I can't seem to find the thread, so it might have happened before I joined ATS and I just remember talking with co-workers about it a lot. He has, since, by the way, added the requested information and found himself a new webmaster. I still think he should have destroyed his server in the interest fairness
