>From reading the Wired article, it looks like the biggest backers are the
big movie studios and record companies, so it makes sense that the bill is
clueless about open source and PD software.

Scary nonetheless.

OK, I just read the CBDTPA.. It'll never work even if it were to be passed
and here's why... <snip> the act doesn't have any provision for open source
or freeware, or PD goodies. The US nor any other country can effectively
poliece/control the internet.<snip>
There's no way a software encryption/decryption would work because you could
not possibly keep the code from leaking out or being reverse engineered.
