Another Blow for Freedom

Another "tool" manufacturer has succumed to the "blame illegal activity on the tool maker, not the tool user" crowd today. 321 Studios, makers of DVD copying software gave into the demands of the motion picture industry. Now don't get me wrong, I am a firm believer in intellectual property rights, but it is absolutely wrong to attack a software maker for the deeds of its customers.

With victim after victim falling prey to this movement, how long can it be until other "tools" are attacked? They have already began the war against fast-food and guns. What is next?

It is time for the American public to wake up to the assault and say enough is enough. We are fast becoming a society controlled by the thought police where possession of anything that can be used to commit a crime is fast becoming a crime itself.
