My Michigan Connection: EFF: Digital Content Protection Act

My Michigan Connection: EFF: Digital Content Protection Act:
"If this bill were to pass, government - and the entertainment industry - would control what you could do with digital media in your home. The broadcast flag would place TV shows in a DRM ghetto, where your right to copy, back-up, sell, time-shift or convert them into formats convenient to you would be at the whim of the broadcasters. The audio flag would give the FCC matching powers over 'digital audio broadcasting,' including satellite radio, digital HD radio, and potentially even Internet radio. Fair use would be frozen into 'customary historical use."
