Proposed DRM legislation criticized as too harsh

EFF IN THE NEWS
July 18, 2007

Consumer rights groups have voiced opposition to legislation introduced in the U.S. Congress last week that would require Internet broadcasters to deploy DRM (digital rights management) technology to prevent listeners from making unauthorized copies of music files...

But the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Public Knowledge oppose the legislation. The bill would be a "backdoor assault on your right to record off the radio," the EFF said. The PERFORM Act would prohibit digital and satellite radio services from offering TiVO-like recording options, the EFF said.
