Quote of The Day: Cord Blomquist

"Congressmen Towns and Issa don’t seem to realize that LimeWire is just one of hundreds of applications that allow end-users to share files with each other. To say that we should investigate these software applications for working as they were designed just plain misses the point."

"If the DoJ or the FTC chase this red herring far enough, they’ll likely place restrictions on file sharing programs—like mandating default settings about what files are shared—but this will do nothing to solve the very serious problems in the Pentagon and other agencies and will simply amount to another useless mandate."

- Cord Blomquist, writing on The Technology Liberation Front, regarding a report that the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is reopening its investigation of services like LimeWire that allow consumers to distribute files online.
