Yeah, it's been such a pain, as nobody over here is quite sure how the
hell it'll be enforced either, or if it even will be. It's also pretty
vague as to just where the line gets drawn. The official government
sites on this are pretty black and white, but don't clearly address the
grey areas. I think this is definitely a case of the persons making the
laws don't understand the technology involved, which sadly seems to be
the case across a lot of tech laws being passed world-wide of late :(
