Disney Asks FCC to Control All Digital Music
• posted by Dan Gillmor 11:45 PM
The EFF has posted this astounding note about the music industry's latest move toward controlling all digital music content. Disney is the stalking horse for the cartel's wishes.
"Disney wants the FCC to regulate all devices capable of recording from any audio broadcasting medium or from the Internet. FM radio, XM, Sirius, Streamripper, Total Recorder, you're all in the crosshairs. It's the Hollings Bill all over again.
