Mayor of Boston bans Boing Boing  —  Jake tried to access Boing Boing from Boston's free WiFi network and got this notice — topped by the seal of the Mayor of Boston no less!  Banned in Boston — first they came for the Mooninites, then they came for the Boingers.  —  Want to defeat censorware?

Safeguards For RIAA Hard Drive Inspection  —  it (a) permits the RIAA's own imaging person to make the initial mirror image  —  IANAL, but having RTFA, I'd say that statement's a bit misleading.  It actually states that an expert agreed upon by both parties will make two copies …

Om Malik / GigaOM:
Google's privacy nightmare just starting  —  Nothing comes between my alogarithm and profits.  Or so thought Google when it made a decision to buy DoubleClick for $3.1 billion dollars.  Except they hadn't counted on pesky politicians and busy bodies who would make a stink about the privacy policies …
