Oh Dear, DMCA meets Terminator

May 15, 2007

In light of http://digg.com/tech_news/Gonzales_proposes_new_crime_Attempted_copyright_infringement_3

I urge all of you to head over to The Few No More’s download page and download music. Legally. You don’t even have to pay for it. Don’t even listen to it if you don’t want to, just download it.

Seriously! From the article:

Create a new crime of life imprisonment for using pirated software. Anyone using counterfeit products who “recklessly causes or attempts to cause death” can be imprisoned for life. During a conference call, Justice Department officials gave the example of a hospital using pirated software instead of paying for it.

HELL NO!

I refuse. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read, and I hope it does not pass at all. A unanimous No vote would be perfect, but with all of congress and senate in the MPAA/RIAA’s pocket, there’s no way that will happen.

This inspires me to be creative, or something. Make music! Make music FREE!

Live free!
