Author: JT Smith

From commentary at ZDNet: "It looks like the now-infamous case of until recently jailed Russian software
developer Dmitry Sklyarov was just the beginning of a broader trend to cast IT professionals in
the role of info cop. Software developers like Sklyarov and even help desk and system
administration workers, it appears, are being deputized to enforce ill-conceived laws aimed at
perceived Web-borne threats to society."
