    [A good starting point. But why only sponsors? How about the politicos who 
    voted for these laws? --Declan]
    AOTC has researched the sponsors of eight bad Internet laws and compiled a 
    list of their most prolific campaign contributors. These laws were written 
    and sponsored by a tiny handful of lawmakers, backed by a tiny handful of 
    wealthy financiers. These bad coders and their backers have done more 
    damage to computing, the Internet and freedom than all the virus authors, 
    spammers and crackers combined.
