[ppml] Securities Act 15 U.S.C. 77b(a)(1)

 The interesting thing to me about the whole "IP as property" concept is
that the only way to dictate it is by making an unenforceable rule.  The
whole concept is almost impossible to police at layer three or higher
unless you are going to tie the IP address to a MAC ID or a physical
port (route?) or an identity key.  Tacking in the overhead to globally
route with authorization in every packet would be unfeasible.  

Making a rule you can't enforce is really bad parenting and tends to
destroy your authority.
