RIAA/MPAA vill förbjuda teknisk innovation

EFF berättar att RIAA och MPAA vill ha möjlighet att stoppa alla nya uppfinningar som skulle kunna användas för piratkopiering.

Från EFF:

Well, that’s not what the entertainment industry has in mind. According to them, here’s all tomorrow’s innovators should be allowed to offer you:

”customary historic use of broadcast content by consumers to the extent such use is consistent with applicable law.”

Had that been the law in 1970, there would never have been a VCR. Had it been the law in 1990, no TiVo. In 2000, no iPod.

Lagförslaget: Digital Content Protection Act of 2006
