I can’t wait to see how this turns out. Don’t get me wrong – the proposed law won’t leave us in an ideal situation, but I am glad to see a real stand for openness, and sensible penalties for making unauthorized personal copies.
On a related note, I laughed at this quote from an interview with Richard Stallman:
Officially, MPAA stands for Motion Picture Association of America, but I suggest that MPAA stands for Malicious Power Attacking All. And RIAA stands for Really Intends to Alienate the Audience.
(Good thing that I’m at least still allowed, both legally and technologically, to cut and paste snippets of text…)
There are no revisions for this post.
