For the last few years, a coalition of technology companies, academics and computer programmers has been trying to persuade Congress to scale back the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Now Congress is preparing to do precisely the opposite. A proposed copyright law seen by CNET News.com would expand the DMCA’s restrictions on software that can bypass copy protections and grant federal police more wiretapping and enforcement powers.
This is unbelievable. I think the current standing government has just sealed their own party’s fate.
I can tell you this, right now. If this Republican President gets this passed, I will never vote for another Republican for President or any Republican as any member of Congress.
