tilly, thanks. You're right to bring it up.
The SSSCA is horrible public, private and science policy.
From reports I've read, the SSSCA also contains or mandates:
Several interesting and related sites: StopPoliceware.org, (contains links to the bill, new articles, representatives and a petition), another petition is here, some independent writings discussing how the law may backfire on the content providers pushing it are here.
For those interested (and you should be), there's much more literature available by searching.
It's difficult to conceive how far-reaching and intrustive this legislation is and can be. There must be huge contribution$ and other political lever$ being pushed...
and Main Street won't notice that a few more rights simply disappeared late one night.
