Oppose the MPAA and RIAA attempts to halt innovation and limit home recording…

MPAA is asking the Senate to go far beyond what the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) did in its broadcast flag order, which targeted mass indiscriminate distribution of content over the internet. MPAA’s proposed language could forbid consumers from transferring lawfully acquired content over any digital network, including those entirely within private homes.

 

In addition, RIAA is now advocating an intrusive, anti-consumer digital radio proposal which could delay the rollout of digital radio services, render existing digital radios obsolete, and devastate both manufacturers and the 500 U.S. broadcasters already on the air.  Furthermore, RIAA’s proposal would prevent consumers from recording free over-the-air radio broadcasts – a legal right that Americans have enjoyed for decades.
