Quote of the Month

"The Internet is a highway of stolen goods and child pornography that goes into the bedroom of every kid in this country."

~ an unnamed lobbyist for the Canadian Recording Industry Associations (Canadian version of the RIAA), arguing for restrictive DRM legislation modeled on the WIPO treaty.

This quote comes from an op-ed piece by Charles Angus, a Canadian MP and musician, describing Big Content's efforts to protect its outdated business model. Angus argues against legislatures acting as a rubber stamp for passing draconian laws drawn up by corporate lobbyists by recalling early efforts to by RCA to cripple FM radio.
