Legislate behavior, not technology

News story on Warner Brothers decision to use BitTorrent to distribute movies causes me to recall a discussion among CIO's in state government when a policy was proposed to block all peer-to-peer applications as such calls "served no legitimate purposes."  I was given a very skeptical look when I protested on behalf of education…

Now, imagine the work that will have to be done to "unblock" these legitimate services.
