We of course have it easy, because they managed to get a tax on blank
media here (all kinds) the courts have currently declined to allow them to have
their cake and eat it too (i.e. they have been unsuccessful suing people so
far). However, that said we run a Packeteer packet shaper on our commodity
link and restrict bandwith to all the filesharing protocols (but not on our
C4 link which is clear channel Gig to CA*net4 and I2). We were wise enough to
contract out our resnet so the sharing going on there isn't my worry either
(big smile on my face :-)).
