Proposed Amendment Would Ban All DVD Copying

A proposed amendment to the current copy protection license governing DVDs would completely ban all DVD backups, and prevent DVD playback without the DVD disk being present inside the drive.”

Dear Congress, or whoever the hell votes for that shit, I want to be able to use my media in our family without DRM, region-coding or other such silly restrictions. Give me the benefit of the doubt.

You see, in Spain it’s legal to backup your CDs and DVDs, yet there is a tax on all recordable CDs and DVDs. I personally just buy CDs to backup my personal files or to burn Linux/BSD ISO images. So why should I be paying a tax to “artists” for doing so?

I couldn’t have said it better: give me the benefit of the doubt.

“The amendment is currently being considered by the Content Protection Advisory Council (CPAC) of the DVD CCA.”
