Wired has published key documents from the EFF's lawsuit against ATT&T for allegedly cooperating with the NSA'S domestic surveillance program. Former AT&T tech Mark Klein, who outed these documents, also offers his commentary.
As the May issue was being put to bed, the Internet was all aflutter over a proposal by digital strategy consultant Jim Griffin to have Internet Service Providers (ISPs) levy a $5 surcharge—a "network licensing model"—on all broadband users. Under this model, Griffin proposes that ISPs collect the fee, which would then be paid into a pool to "compensate music-copyright holders." Griffin says that consumers who do not download digital music files would not be forced to pay the surcharge, but that he anticipates "70–80% would pay" for all the content they could download.
I got wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist
You know I'd have all the things these lucky charms could bring
If you'd give me just one sweet kiss, rowr, rowr, rowr
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do.
