    One APUGer one vote. But if APUGers are typical less that 50% would vote; that is the real problem.

    Once inacted I wonder if backward compatibility will wane -- forcing us to 'upgrade' all of our equipment so that we can receive the signal sent on the airwaves we have given away for next to nothing to the broadcast companies.

    Sony needs to sell recorders as bad as they need us to pay and pay again for their high art productions.

    It raises some other questions:
    If commercial photographers demand that there should be a DRM embedded in their photographs will that diminish even more the professional film-using community?
    Will analog photograph become undesirable to galleries, museums, shops because of their lack of copyright protection?
    Or will the analog photographs mark the new era of freedom fighting against digital control?

    All very true. <sigh> Though with legislation like this, voting wouldn't matter; the congress would do all the damage, and we'd all get left holding the bag. All we could then do is vote the responsible parties out of office, and still be stuck with this gun-to-the-head of a law.

    Similarly, there is a proposition on the Texas ballot next week, which I'd greatly like to see defeated. At least with this one, the citizenry gets a chance to have their say; I'll definitely go cast my vote, and I'm urging all my friends to get out and vote as well. Incidentally, all you Texans out there, get out and vote NO on Prop 2!

    Ahh but the congress we replace them with can repeal the law!

    As we say in NY: vote early and often!

    There was even something mentioned in the article regarding the definition of 'professional devices' as being things that 'didn't sell well'. I guess we're all going to be considered 'professional' whether we are or not if this baloney is passed. Of course, today if you have a big camera, people already think that you are a professional, since bigger must mean 'professional'.

    Actually, the difficulty of making a high-quality copy of an analog photo without the cooperation of its creator is greater protection than a gallery would have with any digital image.

    So does this mean I have to get an LP turntable before they become illiegal? I think this is directed towards the recording and Motion Picture (as opposed to film) industry. Granted I don't have all that much sympathy for the music and motion picture industry considering most music and movies released these days are s**t.
