New Bill Proposed to Restrict Digital Freedom

Not sure if you guys already know about the CBDTPA bill, but it is an important bill for us iPod users and music listeners in general. The “Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act” is a plan to restrict our freedom through computers.

“The law would force all new personal computers and digital home entertainment devices sold in the United States to have government-approved “policeware” built-in. This policeware would restrict your use of copyrighted material on these devices—including music files and CD’s, video clips, DVD’s, e-books, and more.”

Sign the petition to tell these senators their bill is out of line and against our rights as citizens of the United States.
