Congresscritters blast RIAA

Paul sez, "A bunch of congressfolks criticize the RIAA for misinterpreting the DMCA, in front of the makers of electronic gadgets."

"The fundamental problem with the approach of the RIAA took is that it was based on legislation that created special property rights," Sununu said. "Suddenly, you had a private entity that's able to issue subpoenas, which is unprecedented."

"That's not what the DMCA was intended to do," he said. "We can't be writing legislation that gives holders of certain types of intellectual property special rights…We can't carve out special legislation to give special powers to certain types of content."


(Thanks, Paul!)
