Among the purposes of the DMCA was to promote multimedia on the Internet, spurring it's growth. But the entertainment industry has made minimal attempt at putting entertainment on the Internet, holding back it's growth (and probably that of the current economy to a degree) and the growth of broadband networking. It should be clear that the DMCA has failed in promoting Internet-based multimedia.
Now, the entertainment industry wants CBDTPA, wanting the same thing (consumer rights aside, idea of promoting Internet multimedia). Should Congress allow this law given the track record of another law designed to do the same thing? (I know one thing, if I were Congress, and someone asked for something, got it, and didnt make use of it, then came back wanting something else to do the same thing, I'd be insulted)
Clearly, this is an issue that I have not seen discussed. Perhaps some exploration into the above would show that neither law is necessary, and both are providing tons of protest and utter dissarray among consumers and technology companies. One suggestion I've seen out there is a 'Bill of Rights' of sorts for consumers -- defining once and for all what is fair use, first sale doctrine, etc.
You're the straw that broke the camel's back!
