My System Specs

Thumbs down Not Right

The only thing that I'm concerned about is the following statement.

"It would be at the discretion of the border agents to determine what infringement is and what isn't. Under the new act, even legally copied DVDs or CDs would be open to scrutiny."

The problem is that if you happen to catch a guard on a bad day, you risk having your laptop destroyed.

It has been my experience, that you would have very little legal recourse that was not cost prohibitive should you find yourself in this situation. IMHO it puts too much power into the hands of untrained people. I don't believe that they have a right to access my digital documents or media without a search warrant.
