The DIEENSA(2006) has special provisions for duly authorized
information collection agents (DAICA's). You apply to the government.
They conduct a complete background check. Do you have any outstanding
parking tickets? Have you taken out your land-ladies garbage? Can you
recite the Pledge of Alleigance backwards? Do you work for a
previously approval Information Reseller? They just don't hand these
out to anyone, you know!
After this, your ICP -- Information Collection Permit -- is approved.
You then submit all of your information gathering equipment to the
authorities. They check it to make sure it is in complete compliance
with the DIEENSA, then modify it so that upon receipt of the "special
signal", your information systems are not effected in any way at all.
Additionally, your equipment has been given the LEAF -- the Law
Enforcement Access Flag technology -- which allows them to read the
contents of your equipment from a remote location. This will allow
them to selectively edit your materials -- should you accidently
collect some informational contraband -- as per the requirements laid
down by the DIEENSA.

The special transmitters are, of course, very high power, and the
electronics derive all of their necessary energy from this signal.
Please google up "RFID" -- this was the prototype system, and it has
been a smashing success. It is so successful, that the USG has
mandated their introduction to US Passports, so the authorities can
remotely detect your presence should you leave the country (clear
evidence of lack of faith in the Glorious Republic!). Do you think I
am making this shit up?

These transmissions are expected only to be used in "riot situations"
(e.g., demonstrations, etc). Highly local. And cameras are subject to
the same demands as the cards: they are required to retransmit the
signal to any sub-components attached to the camera.
Give it up. Do you really think the government is this out of touch?
They pay they keen technological masters princely sums! We know this
is true, we know they are uber-hackers of the highest quality, because
they are about to proscribe essentially _all_ analog to digital
converters! No unlicensed conversions! Please speak to your elected
MPAA representative for details about this innovative program!

All electronics sold in any country must be certified not to interfere
with the governments sacred use of their precious bodily fluid -- the
radio frequency spectrum. The FCC (in the USA) has been denying
type-acceptance of certain radio _receivers_ for almost 20 years now on
this basis. Sorry to hear you are unaware of this.

HA HA HA: you are terminally credulous.
P.S. Like all good propaganda, the above techno babble has a number of
_literally true statements_. Can you find them? You may well be
surprised! But it's ok! The government knows best. Just trust them,
like you trust "Chamberlain"'s sincerity, and nothing bad will happen.
After all, look at what happened on 2001-09-11!
