Thirty countries sign cybercrime treaty
While I was snoozing the L-Tryptophan Slumber...

'Thirty countries today signed a controversial international treaty to combat online crime. Representatives of 26 Council of Europe (CoE) member states, plus the U.S., Canada, Japan, and South Africa, put their signatures on the document at an international meeting in Budapest.'

Interesting Slashdot post about defending against this. IANAL, but unfortunately I'm pretty certain that historically speaking, treaties have sometimes been self-enforcing. Somebody has to fight back when various branches of the government usurp power, and rhetoric is on the side of the "anti-cyber-crime" people.
