Yay for common sense. If the "bits not moving are subject to copying" then the wiretap act is useless. Imagine saying "VoIP packets are held in router memory for several hundred nanoseconds. Therefore, I can copy them." Or "My PBX has to buffer things for it's TDMA switch, therefore I can make a copy.."

In the digital world, there is *always* storage during communication. Something is always caching a whole byte while the bits are being transmitted..
