Legislation Introduced to Limit Digital Radio Recording by Consumers
Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has introduced legislation that would restrict the ability of consumers to record radio signals from digital radio, cable, and the Internet. It requires content providers to place controls that would stop recordings from being made. The legislation died in committee in the last congress, but hopes are high that it will pass this time around. Of course, a lot depends on how much the RIAA ponies up to Democratic campaign coffers.
