Domestic Terrorism: Sounds Like Routine Corporate Behavior

Has anyone noticed that the USA PATRIOT Act definition of "domestic terrorism" sounds like the routine behavior of many corporations?

Section 802 of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 defines the term `domestic terrorism' to mean activities that--

involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
(B) appear to be intended--
(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion.
Sounds like what corporations do all the time.
