Here's a great quotation from that article: "In one sentence, the
maintenance of technologically obsolete copyright regimes requires a
police state. "

Subject: [dvd-discuss] Is the DMCA doomed?
This resonates with a talk here, oh, about 3 years ago...
It took 100 years from the invention of the printing press to the first
book being banned.... Right now, with the DMCA, we're just shy of that
No DVD movie will ever enter the public domain, nor will any CD. The last
and the last DVD will have moldered away decades before they leave
This is not encouraging the creation of knowledge in the public domain.
