I'm too disgusted to say anything.

That's one of the funniest things I've read all day. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face! - I'm sure a bill like that will do wonders for the US economy!

this was even better:
considering how the church of scientology is more of a hate group, this is no surprise to me.

The first article is a pile of horsecrap
The second one is very very funny.

The sad part of it is, people go for this kind of crap (in both articles) and don't stop to really think about what they're supporting or doing.

Even if this law passes, how the hell do they think theyre gonna get this little embedded chips into the devices already in existence???
"Can I put this little chip into all your phones, computers, radios, etc.?"
"It'll only take a second"
fucking retards :mad:

Here's the ONLY way data can be controlled once and for all:
The RIAA blows up ths planet and we start all over as Cavemen/Cavewomen, with no electricity, electronics, etc.

What pisses me off the most is, if this bill ever goes thru, why the government would be willing to waste all this money on fucking chips that aren't gonna solve shit instead of find cures of deadly dieases such as AIDS and Cancer, they rather have people die then make sure some stupid song doesnt get transferred from one computer to another, fuck that. :mad:

im sure its not gonna pass.
how could they possibly enforce it. there are millions of people making software and posting it online.
and lets not forget about the grandfather clause.
all the stuff we use right now is protected by it.:D

I think it's more for the presidence. First this then what? Trojins in all products that allow obersvation of a person useing the product properly. Maybe a virus that uploads information about the person to a central database so they can make sure that you arn't doing anything bad like copying the copy software. I think they know that there is no way on this earth that they can enforce that. The massive amount of hackers and other programming enthusist will have it cracked under an hour. But they can penilze a few people and cry that it's not effect and move on to the next step, complete access to any system with any software made in america.
If it goes through Im either moving to canada or Japan. Can't beat thoes damn cool giant robots. I wonder if they will have the Anti-pircy bit too = P

the Grandfather clause is that any software before hand will not have to go back and add the protection. It's so old (like a grandfather) and there for exempt.

OK, schweeet. Otherwise, I'd have to copy-protect some crappy test-programs I wrote in QBasic.

Remeber it's not Law YET!
16th April 2002, 01:24
yeah...but thats what would happen IF it became law.
16th April 2002, 02:55
That's why we have to stop it

Good article. Makes one feel a little better about the future. :D
An other law that is going to put more money out of the pockets of the small consumer and in the pockets of the rich industry. This way of thinking is going to get us all destroyed. Remember the meaning of Democracy? (power to the people)
Since, i'm from Canada this law is not supposed to affect me, in theory. Just a other point that the US thinks it's the center of the world. They would pass a law that would force every other countries to do pass a similar law if they would want to make trades with the US. And since Canada's is the US biggest trade partners, it would affect us soon after.
And if canada's does not support this law (which im sure it won't because we are a much more liberal country and the citizen rights is much more important that stupid laws) and it's going to be our fault for the piracy in the US, because people would buy there things in canada and cross the border. Blame Canada!!:(
I'm tired of seeing that the US can dictates it's law to everybody else in the world. Why is that when the US passes a law it has to be accepted by the everywhere. Why does the FBI come arresting people for internet hacking, etc. and not the local police. (Example: Mafia Boy was arrested by the GRC at the demande of the FBI). The US doesn't have the right to control 8 billion people. it is not the center of the world.
There is not a chance that this will pass if it is in the form that Wired claims it to be. Then again, Wired isn't exactly known for clear unbiased reporting.

I'd laugh if this weren't for real. But apparently DMCA has broader implications than we could have ever imagined.

All I have to say is this. The music industry has too much of a hold over CD's. You know we OVERPAY for a cd, $20's when to create a cd it's at most $2, and the graphics you put on them are at least $10 per cd. Aside from the fact when the entire Napster thing started, the music industry got an increase in sales. And then they compain a loss in revenue... aside from the fact that they are STILL getting a huge profit (lets put it this way, economics 101, you don't need profit, all you need to do is even out, but the RIAA and the music industry doesn't understand this). And now they want to copy protect everything, soon we are going to have to copy proect our toasters because it may have the slighest possibility to play an mp3.
