Net neutrality hypocrisy

This is a thread on Slashdot complaining about proposed legislation H.R. 4279, aka the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008.

It would allow the Feds to seize hardware that has even one file coming from ‘dubious origins,’ e.g. downloaded from P2P. If passed into law, the bill would establish an Intellectual Property Enforcement Division within the office of the Deputy Attorney General.

While I agree with the Slashdotters that this proposed legislation is a piece of crap I find it ironic that most of them have no trouble allowing government involvement on the internet in the name of ‘net neutrality’. Once you give government a new power you can never get it back.
