The Null Device

The British government (the only Western democracy to require ISPs to have back doors accessible to the security services) has passed legislation requiring sysadmins to be licensed. They say this wasn't their intention, but nonetheless it is on the books. It'll probably be a useful tool to ensure compliance; sysadmins who are slow in handing over passwords or too eager to tell their users that they're being watched could find themselves struck off the register.
