New Senate Broadcast Flag Bill Would Freeze Fair Use

For your viewing pleasure, while I still can, I present an EFF article concerning yet another attempt to limit what you do with content. This latest draft legislation wants to allow “customary historic use of broadcast content by consumers to the extent such use is consistent with applicable law.” How very generous of them. All that stuff you used to do? We guess you can keep doing it. All those cool new ideas? Bugger off.
