When lawbots attack!!!

long story short, Blizzard and other groups are using automated computer programs to sweep the net looking for possible copyright infringements. When spotted these lawbots unleash a devious attack of threats of litigation, legal notices, and other things. So basically, we now have computers enforcing our laws.

I know this sounds like an angry geek but seriously, think about the ramifications of this and wonder if something you post online some day might have a computer program threatening to take you to court.

What a crock of shit. As if were not policed I gotta worry if I have a picture of Dale Jr. on my fan site that is copyrighted....

and an artifical Lawbot finds it....
