I like that one...given Pat Schroeder's comments about how libraries are
the single biggest threat to the publishing industry, they are likely to
be DoSing libraries as well.
Or the ISPs begin blocking the RIAA, MPAA, DoS packets because it's net
junk that is degrading their system performance.
Or the script kiddies decide to band together and do DDoS attacks against
the RIAA, MPAA
Or imagine this...some quick thinking Movie Cop sets up a honeypot and
another Movie Cop gets caught and they DoS each other
