Weird Laws

(via metafilter) Dumb Laws gives you exactly that: American and international laws that the editors think are stupid. Of course, I check out the list for Canada, and am amazed to see they find our Canadian content broadcasting laws dumb. Now I admit that Canada has some pretty strange, and more than a little restrictive, broadcast rules - but just try to imagine what it is like living next door to the world's largest producer of entertainment media and how that impacts our cultural heritage. Since we tend not to repeal laws, and simply let them fall out of use, or mutate through precedent, they could have turned to our many obsolete or absurd rules instead.
