The Flip Side of Privacy

Surprise, I'm skeptical of government mandated privacy rules. for as bad as privacy is perceived to be in the US, just remember that it can get much, much worse.

The Brazilian senate is considering a bill that will make it a crime to join a chat, blog, or download from the Internet without fully identifying oneself first. Privacy groups and Internet providers are very concerned, and are trying to lobby against the bill, but it seems they won't have much success.
