A *LOT* indeed

I agree.

And there is no such thing as zero risk with things that have not been tried in court before, so whatever new standard we create has to be absolutely airtight from a legal point of view. I find myself in an ironic position defending this, as I said in the past that ARIN was too paranoid about legal liability, but that is not the same risk factor than the TAL.

And the fine has to be significant, or they'll pay it, which favors the rich.
