It would be interesting to see Cisco and others sweat this out as they are
heavily invested in corporate nannyware, which is tantamount to the same
thing when not integrated into it here and abroad.  The net really doesn't
distinguish these by national border, or corporate firewall, or high school
or university firewall, or parental control.  It's just how much you pay
and attend to the care and feeding.

So hmm...  We put as much into and probably have far more revenue in this
industry than the Chinese in our GDP in the US...how would State respond?

yrs,
