expand the DCMA hoping to crack down on the possession of any tool that would help to circumvent DRM.
"The bill's new revisions would allow for 10-year sentences for music and software piracy. This is longer than the five years one can get for assaulting a police officer, and the seven years for downloading child pornography."
"Still, any law that would make piracy a more severe crime than child porn is an indication that the government has completely lost its priorities, and is totally at the whim of its industry donors."
When I first read this I just couldn't believe it. I'm shocked that our government is practically giving up on there fight for Child Pornography after asking for search engine random queries.
But circumventing DRM 10 years itself is extreme.
What do you think?
