This is going to end up like the situation with pot smoking. You get pulled over, and the officer asked you if he can search your car for "weapons". In the process, he finds your Kindle on the console, in plain open sight, and since you've already given up all your rights after allowing the search, he checks it out and finds ebooks with DRM removed (he thinks), one of the new IP laws they have to enforce. You are now under arrest. Let's see, recently the movies guys are filing lawsuits for $150,000 per person for copying a movie, so a book is worth what, $100,000? So now you've got to make a $10,000 bail. Of course, in our society, we presume anyone is innocent until proved guilty, right? And of course, we have some people, actually members of this forum, that will try to say that the civil act of IP violation is a criminal act, so we can expect some jail time also, right? I mean now we are (I've been hearing this lately) of jailing or even sentencing someone to what, death? for IP violations?

This stuff is going too far. Better look out... history can repeat itself.
