How big of a threat to you is the legislation to amend the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's "anti-circumvention" section?
We're concerned by it. We think it's a terrible precedent.
Sigh. Despite the terrible abuses we've seen from the anti-circumvention provisions, and despite the fact that frikkin' copyright law already makes illegal what the music industry claims they really care about, they think that this awful provision of the DMCA is an absolutely necessary precedent.
This, more than anything else, proves to me that the music industry of today is an obselete beast that will need to go extinct in its current form before society, the Internet, and music can progress into the future.
