House Outlaws Fast-Forwarding; Senate & Pres Next?

November 16th, 2004

These sorts of things really tick me off. Wired is reporting that the U.S. House has passed HR2391, which, among other things, would make it a violation of the Copyright Act to skip commercials using a technological means (hardware or software) — and it makes it a violation to make the computer program that allows people to skip commercials.

I feel a donation to the EFF coming on.
