Senate Passes Net Liquor Ban
10/13/2000; 9:59:48 AM

'The U.S. Senate voted 95-0 on Wednesday to slap strict rules on Internet purchases of intoxicating beverages by prohibiting wineries, breweries or virtually anyone else from selling and shipping alcohol directly to consumers.'

Interesting because it's a case of a Internet jurisdiction issue being settled, which there haven't been too many of.

Amusing: 'The restriction was included in an unrelated bill dealing with trafficking in sex slaves.'
