Why the internet wins over stupid laws

In Australia there has been an injunction placed on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because of a lawsuit between Samsung and Apple. It hasn’t stopped the punters however:

“If we could ask one question of Justice Bennett in the wake of her decision it would be this: does she really believe, in a global consumer economy, that there is any practical value in an Australian court slapping an injunction on a mass-market consumer product that is, in any event, widely available for purchase online?”

The only people affected by the injunction are the bricks and mortar retailers. Once again though it shows why legislators just don’t get it when it comes to technology versus the law.
