Dancing on toes which are dancing on toes

I'm not the least bit surprised by this post at the Volokh Conspiricy, which simply points out that the current bills in front of congress that would make spyware illegal, are, (get ready to be shocked) entirely redundant.
I'm too lazy to fact check, but its not like congress is oblivious to existing laws - I mean just last week they passed a law that makes it legal to fast forward though a commercial (or objectionable portion of a movie) of corse they made that redundancy possible by making it a felony to carry a device capable of video recording into a theater (like your brand new camera phone). I don't know if they simply aren't that smart or if they really hate those idiots who have loud conversations on their cell phones in the middle of the movie.
