Lets Burn the Glaf (FCC Flag) Review

Posted on Wednesday, September 22 2004 @ 22:14:16 CEST by LSDsmurf

The FCC has approved 13 sets of broadcast-flag rules-and that's just the beginning.

I trust the top headline got your attention. For the record, I wouldn't dream of doing violence to the stars and stripes. However another flag, the broadcast flag, is in the news again with the Federal Communications Commission's announcement that it has approved 13 different ways of implementing the copy protection technology.

Actually, isn't the term "copy protection" a bit vague? Whom does it protect? Not the consumer. The term "copyright protection" comes a bit closer to the truth though the term "digital rights management"-copyright protection for the era of zeroes and ones-is becoming trendier. Perhaps we should just call a spade a spade and call it "anti-copying" technology.
