Digital Distribution of Music
« on: June 06, 2006, 12:09 PM »
This is technically political, but I had no idea that this was even happening and I thought many of you (in the USA) would like to know. This was dated yesterday and they'll be voting on it Wednesday if I understand correctly.

In 24 hours, the music industry may succeed at getting the obscure SIRA bill changed in committee in Congress. At issue is their plan to change copyright so that you're going to need separate licenses for "incidental" copies of digital music: copies in RAM, copies in browser caches, and so on. Changing the act this way paves the way for a ban on digital radio recording devices, and what's worse, the companies that presently sell digital music are supporting this!

If this bothers you, there is a link to find your representatives to tell them that you are opposed to it.
