As a result Mr. Hatch suddenly had to realize that messing with the online community feels a little bit like messing with the IRS. And as we all know from our last tax audit - if they start to look, they do find stuff:
- Stuff like the link to an obscure porn site, which was found in a section of the Senator's homepage, which promotes the natural wonders of his home state of Utah.
- Or the fact the Senator seems to use pirated software on his own website (via Wired).
I wonder what would happen if BSA and RIAA would care to pay a visit to Mr. Hatch's Office !? Is really every MS Office-Version fully licensed ? No staffer is listening to relaxing mp3s from dubious sources ??
Oh, by the way: You now can even buy anti-Hatch merchandise right here on the internet. Pretty amazing, what a free market system makes possible in such a short time, isn't it ? ;-)
