In my opinion, this is merely Plan B, and regulation isn't going to be far behind. That is the usual pattern, they tax it, then regulate it. Who
knows, the IRS might be on your next network router, and your next ISP might be .GOV. It's comming, I'm afraid. The internet was the first time in
human history that there was open communication, and unlimited access to information, and they just can't have that. I really don't think that any
governmental system could maintain integrity when the constiuents are allowed an open exchange of information like the net, because governmental
institutions are inherently corrupt.. With the recent consolidation of the major media, the net is last bastion of open communication, and I think it
is scaring our government to death. It was too good to last.
