[liberationtech] The worrisome trend toward liability in networking technology

I'm thrilled with Websense's statement.  Mind you, Websense has always
behaved fairly well...when, in 2009, they found out Yemen was using their
tools, they publicly stated then that they were pulling further updates.
Perhaps it's all for show, but I believe Websense will follow through.

I also think that companies like Websense have a real opportunity to start
marketing to parents in some of the countries where filtering debates are
taking place (e.g., Tunisia, Turkey)...one that they ought to seize.  If
parents realize they have that (affordable) option, perhaps they'll stop
supporting government initiatives...
