File under better late than never?

Nipplegate, legal.

It helped the anti-FCC side of the argument that the FCC had to ex post facto CBS in order to fine it because its rules had allowed fleeting nudity or obscenity, and were changed in response to the "event".

The whole range of laws and rules that are passed because a random "obviously" terrible thing happens, but which cannot be punished under these new rules and laws because they already happened, kind of depressing.
