Aaron StraderConcern over the Analog Hole?

I spotted this as something that's passed through Congress yesterday. This seems to be taking a Broadcast Flag idea a bit too far.

Does this concern anyone in the business? I don't think that the problem of protecting content should be made enough of an issue to where we have to deal with it, but I do a lot of digitizing of content, and I don't want to have to report my statistics of how many copies of Grandma's B-Day I duped to the MPAA. They don't have any rights to how my business is run, or how I make my clients happy. I'm interested on how everyone else on the board sees this.

I personally don't like it. It's my content that I paid/produced for. No law is going to convince me what I can and cannot do with it. If I have the right to resell it in it's original condition, then it truly is mine and it's something I own.

Any thoughts?
