Digital ‘Fair Use’ Bill Introduced In Congress
It looks like our representitives are earning their money this week :). Reps Rich Boucher, a dem from Va, and John Dolottle, a Cali repub, are set to intrdouce the FAIR USE. Good to see the RIAA lawsuit money wasn't able to bribe everyone in Washington.
From the article:
"The Digital Millennium Copyright Act dramatically tilted the copyright balance toward complete copyright protection at the expense of the public's right to fair use," Boucher said in a statement. "Without a change in the law, individuals will be less willing to purchase digital media if their use of the media within the home is severely circumscribed and the manufacturers of equipment and software that enables circumvention for legitimate purposes will be reluctant to introduce the products into the market."
