For those of us worried

  • For those of us worried about copyright and fair use, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is running a weblog keeping tabs on the Broadcast Protection Discussion Group which is, “an obscure group of Hollywood studios and technology companies that are negotiating a “consensus” for any gadget or code that can touch the studios’ product. Once they’re done, they want to go to Washington and ask Congress and/or the FCC to give their ‘standard’ the force of law.” Meaning, the entertainment industry is working behind our backs with the electronics industry to figure out a way to keep us from copying any digital content — even if that copying is actually legal. Freely shared information is the tool to beat them back — it’s the one thing they’re really scared of.
