Michael, I'm not sure whether you intended sarcasm here or not, but, I can
assure you that in my experience, most Telco and Cableco iSPs are only
unwilling to violate the law if they expect to get caught and there is
significant accountability or cost to doing so. Otherwise, they seem to
regard the letter of the law as a minor irritant at best.

I think this is an unfair characterization of the debate on this issue.
