    Without even reading the article, I must stand by my opinion that people that claim that analog photography wil vanish, are equal to the combination of file-extension and last word of the file-name in the link you provided:
    hole.ars
    edit: I didn't see that you pointed to the wider meaning of analog.

    *sigh* will you people take the time to read it?
    Its about the new proposed digital copy protection mechanisms that since cannot be applied to analog devices will create a legal hole. Granted, the article talks about video and audio but how is still images that different then?
    If a copyright protection mechanism gets imbedded in the next image format, will that make non "protected" analog photographs illegal and/or valuable?

    True.
    Sorry.

    A.,
    I did take time to read the article afterwards (I'm a fast reader) and it points to something that I love: they can't control the playability of video and audio on analog devices (tapes, vinyl) and thus can not make extra money from it, each time you want to play a song or movie.

    Ever heard of the phrase "knee jerk reaction" ?
    Grow up, be patient, learn to read before you post.

    It is still the death of analog issue. I did read the article before I posted.

    When one's knee has been kicked a number of times the correct thing to do is to jerk it in the direction from which the blow came!

    looks like it'll be more of a problem with videographers, though I can see various governmentally empowered control freaks trying to mess up just about anything that has electrons bopping about hither dither and yon within its body. Good to know I'm somewhat safe if I just keep the battery out of my Canon F1 and that the Zorki never even heard of a battery.

    Perhaps the broader roll of government in the 21st century is to make Amish out of us all.

    This is a "death of your rights" issue. To summarize, the US HoR (hey, that's funny) is introducing a bill which will require broadcasters to put flags on all broadcast signals, designed to limit or eliminate any ability to copy, or even record, the content, and ALL devices will be required to honor those flags. Even though this is targeted at analog broadcasts, you know that if they get this enacted they'll seek similar legislation that will cover ALL content. This is the MPAA, after all - who are shaping up to be far more anti-customer than the RIAA ever dreamed.

    Yet another example of the fact that our government is of, by, and for the corporations, and against the common people. I'm sure the vast bulk of APUGgers don't have large enough suitcases full of money to make their voices heard in Washington; I know I don't.
