There's another group Juenger misses: entrenched customers, maybe a bit older, who engage enthusiastically with multiple OTT services, but who haven't cut the cord... yet. [Raises hand] And we're constantly seething over the crazy-high rates these mercenary cable providers charge, with their inflexible channel packages and near-mandatory services bundles. Something, some day, will turn the seethe into rage, and we'll all be gone.
Once again, and with the added delight of potential translation issues, are we talking about unmanned, remote-piloted drone aircraft, or about remote-controlled hobbyist devices like model airplanes and small quad-copters? Seems bizarre to try to regulate military-grade attack hardware in the same breath as toys.
The Trustees of local libraries are, generally, ill-suited to serve; as politically-appointed volunteers, they're most likely to be chosen for being "nice", or seeming "cultured". Most professional members of the library's staff would do a far better job... their positions generally require a Master's degree in information science, and intellectual property law is a significant part of their training (and experience). I'm sure the Trumbull staff is near apoplexy (in their quiet, stereotypical sort of way) over the idiocy displayed by their Board.
Let's try that "unfair" test against someone standing outside my door, opening and reading my credit card statements.
First test - If they don't use my credit card number to buy anything, I guess the FTC says, no harm, no foul, right? That can't be right.
Second test - How can I reasonably avoid an intruder tearing sealed letters open?
Third test - Hard to imagine "countervailing benefits" for violating my privacy and security, unless they see all those charges for sex toys, and give me 20% discount coupons for Clorox Sex Toy Wipes.
No, it doesn't play any better for old-school (postal) data communications than for HTML/SSL... except for one thing: It's a federal offense to even touch someone else's mail, likely for the same security and privacy reasons.
