1. Unfortunately the legislature has already passed a law to force PC repair shops to search...
your computer for child porn or face fines/jail not doing so, even if they don't have any sort of probable cause. Basically your computer's privacy is completely out the window if you take it in now.

This of course would not be legal if law enforcement were to do this without probable cause and a warrant to do so. So, I hope they don't follow that same mentality in this area too. EFF and the ACLU will have their hands full here.
