    There could be a useful rhetorical play to pick up here; have digital liberties activists in the US ever tried framing it to appeal to the ThinkOfTheChildren memeplex? To be sure, it goes against the grain – would be actively internally inconsistent, really -  but hey, this is politics, not ethics. The EFF should look into finding a high-powered law firm willing to consider a class action civil suit against the MAFIAA for harassment, abusive legal tactics pursuant to same, emotional damage, whatever a civil version of extortion would be…and choose kids as the plaintiffs. Even if there’s not a huge expectation of winning, with the right media team the political value could be enormous.

    That’s a pretty ballsy move. Props to them. I fully expect a follow-up post in the coming weeks asking for donation towards their defense fund…
