Most of you know that I am a conservative Republican. You may even know that generally, I see the positives of the Bush administration. I'm a bit different - I believe that people have the right to defend themselves, and even take the offensive. That means that I can understand the Palestinian mindset. I like to think that I can understand, just a little, about why they do what they do. I believe that America should always act in her interests - and not those of others. I believe swift retribution for all attacks against the US. But, none of this has anything to do with the DMCA. So, why do I bring it up? Because, while one source (especially CNET) is not enough to be an authority, I am upset. I believe that things have gone too far. And when I say that I side with the Democrat noted in the article (even though he is a VA Democrat...), I am really bothered. I am especially bothered by the breadth of the language - punishment for possession of hardware or software that can be used to bypass copy-protection. That language would have made it illegal for a PC user to have a keyboard (because of the Shift key) or anybody to have a Mac during the Sony rootkit fiasco. After all, they let you bypass the auto-run feature that made your computer special (of course Sony was misbehaving too...). Too broad.
