Democrats exhume "broadcast flag"

By Michael J. Smith on Monday June 26, 2006 01:30 PM

It's baaack, and badder than ever, thanks inter alia to your your friendly Senate Democrats.

I refer to the iniquitous "broadcast flag," discussed briefly here last October. The "broadcast flag" is a copy-protection scheme, and if nice Democrats like Boxer and Inouye, and nice Republicans like Stevens and Smith, have their bipartisan way, it will be illegal for any device you may own or build, or any software you may download or write, to ignore it.

Nobody ever expected the Spanish Inquisition, either (shown above).
