"Of course, you can't really stop misuse completely but strict, clear laws with well-defined terms will go a long way."

Laws only deter law breakers if they are enforced effectively, consistently & fairly. I don't see that happening in this country. What tends to happen is the laws are not enforced because the police really aren't capable or interested in enforcing them. The Wasters of Westminster respond by creating new poorly thought out laws and cutting the police budget.

The law is being made to look stupid by the morons passing the laws. IMO. ;)
