New Proposed RIAA/MPAA Policies

Posted: April 15, 2010 in Tech

This Gizmodo article and this Buzz Out Loud podcast cover some new policies proposed by the RIAA/MPAA that will police their content by ways of using spyware to remove files they deem to be hurting them, border searches, and censorware on all internet connections. And guess who will pay for these new policies…YOU! The American taxpayer!

From Gizmodo:

-spyware on your computer that detects and deletes infringing materials;
-mandatory censorware on all Internet connections to interdict transfers of infringing material;
-border searches of personal media players, laptops and thumb-drives;
-international bullying to force other countries to implement the same policies;
and free copyright enforcement provided by Fed cops and agencies (including the Department of Homeland Security!).
