New Law To Require DRM On Streaming Music

from the all-about-choice,-huh? dept

One of the other common themes at this morning's Cato event from the folks supporting stronger IP protections was that it was all about "choice." They kept saying that the point of having laws to protect DRM is to give people the "choice" of whether or not to protect their works. Those of us who were arguing on the other side wondered why this "choice" needed to be codified by law -- when they already have the "choice" to use DRM or not without needing a law making things more difficult. However, it's really hard to square the idea that this is all about giving the content creators a "choice" when new laws come out that do things like requiring the use of copy protection technologies. The latest is the so-called PERFORM Act, which Gary Shapiro (of the Consumer Electronics Association) pointed out was problematic in his discussion this morning. The bill tries to add new license fees to satellite radio -- even though these broadcasters already pay for the content they broadcast. The specific issue is that since the broadcast is also streamable and recordable on computers, the industry wants a second license beyond the broadcast one. The second one is to cover the potential for someone to record the stream and keep a version of the content. It's basically a way to double dip from the satellite radio providers. That's not all the bill does, however. The EFF is pointing out that among the provisions of the bill there's one that would effectively require any streaming music provider to use copy protection. While some do so already, many others stream (legally) using MP3 streaming. These aren't downloads of MP3s, but streams. These streams are basically just as recordable as traditional terrestrial radio -- which hasn't been much of a problem in the past. However, this bill would require anyone who uses the standard SoundExchange licenses to pay for the rights to stream music would then be required to ditch MP3 streams and replace them with proprietary DRM-encrusted streams to make it more difficult to record the stream (which, last we checked was still perfectly legal fair use). In other words, the "choice" aspect goes away and the DRM is effectively required by law. Once again, it's looking like this is less about "choice" and much more about protecting one industry's increasingly obsolete business model.

    This is like the CDR tax...

    Let them tack on a new fee because I could potentially record the satellite radio stream... then in turn the XM/Sirius folk pass that fee onto me. Since I'm paying to record the stream, I can and will do so, willingly, sans and DRM or any other restriction they think they can impose... because I am paying for it... and they're forcing me to pay for it.

    I dont listen to satellite radio but if I did and the price went up because of the possibility that I may reocord the streams then I most certainly would start recording. No way am I gonna pay for something that I wont use.

    DRM and Copy Protection

    I seem to recall in the early 80's all the software guys tried copy protection. They abandonded it for the most part in a couple of years - it was soundly rejected by the market. Years later, registration and confirmation came to the front. However, copy protection is pretty much gone and software is copied freely. Too bas the media industries don't take a look at something along these lines instead of this government mandated DRM preventent even those who wish to stream their own music from doing so. Talk about legislation for protection of status quo!

    Streaming Music DRM

    I dont listen to streaming music so I couldn't care less but charging satellite radio extra because someone "might" record the music is complete bullshit. They dont do that for terrestrial radio do they?

    Reason to be a revolutionist.

    Thing that pisses me off about this the most is that once agian we're seeing legislation trying to get passed that has the word MIGHT in it. Why the hell does anyone involved with this case still have a dayjob? Trying to pass a law that requires someone to do something because someone else MIGHT do something is just utter bullshit, not to mention unconstitutional. That's like requiring a car dealership to charge anyone who buys a sportscar $500 because they might speed. Or throwing people in jail becuase they got drunk and started swearing in public and acting aggressivley even though they didnt cause harm to anyone, but they MIGHT have, and MIGHT do so in the future. WTF?!

    Those DRM f**kers are at it again…

    Let me get this straight:

    OK so music CD prices haven’t dropped like they (the recording industry) said they would. (To curb downloading.)

    You’ve stopped (or at least slowed) your P2P MP3 downloading because that's been deemed illegal and you don't want some over-paid music lawyer sueing you for downloading a COPY of a copy of a copy(?)...

    But you still won't buy very many music CDs because there's still the problem of getting that one GOOD song and the TEN shi**y ones the "one hit wonders" put on their albums as filler...

    OK so then you decide to buy an Ipod and actually PAY for the one good song! Well that doesn't work either because the music industry DRM fanatics already buggered that whole deal...

    So you decided to be happy(?) with listening to commercial free (relatively) music in the genre you want online for free...

    Think again. Those DRM f**kers are at it again…

    I got a ticket the other day. It is funny. I did not actually run the the stop sign for which I received my ticket, I just thought about. It is part of some new law enacted the other day called the "Feinstein Might Law". I guess this also makes me married because I told my friend I might propose to my girlfriend soon.

    You know politicians in America have their head up in the area where the son does not shine.

    Once they realize that whenever they come up with technology to thwart what they deem "illegal" we will come up with counter-technology to circumvent theirs, they will stop trying.

    In the meantime I suppose I should hand in my mixed tapes recorded from the radio in the 80's and beg for amnesty.

You may have voted for them because they are the "lesser of two evils" but that's not how they take the vote. They take your vote to mean a full endorsement of all their invasive big brother schemes and policies.

    liberalism/socialism is more where we want to be.....a government that cares about the people....i mean...look at france and england, for example.... when the government does something stupid....then...BAM!.....the next day there is like 2 million people storming the streets in protest...

    those goverments listen to those people because they are suppossed to.....that is governments job.....

    I have to agree with what one person said at least. It's pretty pathetic that our country has such problems as starvation, poverty, diseases, and such global issues or at least national as we have. But the news toppers are Microsoft and DRM. Sad, very sad. Music is meant to be heard, you tell me those rich fuckers living in their *cribs* can't afford to have their cds dropped in price to something people actually dont mind paying for. Please. RIAA calls us greedy because we don't want to pay 15$ for a CD with one or two good songs on it yet the music industry lives in million dollar houses. I get the feeling the greed is not on my end for downloading music that is tolerable at best.

    So sad...

    Put a movie in the theater worth paying 10$ for and i will pay 10$ to see it, but when your chart toppers are movies like *Date Movie* Don't expect me to even download trash like that. I have seen maybe 3 good movies this year, and yes i saw them in theaters because nothing beats the big screen with a great movie. But as for the ones i downloaded, and oh yea i download a lot, most of them werent worth wasting 50 cents to buy a dvd to put them on ;) Its a shame because i remember a lot of great movies growing up, and well, you just don't see many of those anymore.

    The DRM Legacy

    It's become incredibly obvious that these companies have no interest in providing a useful service to customers and instead would rather focus on generating revenue by extracting settlement fees from ex-customers. I for one can not fathom how an industry such as this can expect to survive in the long term. While the companies may fade away I'm still apprehensive about the fact that their ill conceived laws and regulations will continue to haunt us long after their demise.

    "so please do us all a favor and learn a little about how free market economics actually work and start voting appropriately"

    a free market economy is an economy where markets are free from government control. the US is NOT a free market economy. we have the fed, interest rates, sales tax, business licensing, and of course taxes. these are all government tools for controlling the direction of the market and by proxy, the US economy.

    if you truly could make money by offering the best product for the best price, then companies like telcos, cable providers, utilities, and the airlines would have to compete with eachother. but they don't, thanks to the FTC, the FAA, the FCC, you name it. there is a lot of government control over the market and the economy.

    the US is a lot of things, but it is not a free market economy.

    This pisses me off to no end. I like to listen to Coast to Coast AM interviews on my computer, but they "have to" truncate the MP3 downloads (which I pay for) to remove the bumper music. I don't care about missing out on 30 seconds of bumper music, but I do miss out on some interview time. Truncating the interview often results in my missing some critical information at each half our break. My workaround is to download the stream (which includes the complete music) with some third party software (an action that is completely within my rights since I am paying to get these interviews in their entirety) and it's the only way that I can get them since I can't listen to streams at work, nor in my car. But if they implement this DRM crap, I'm going to be totally stuck out listening to the chopped up interviews.

    The RIAA is actually making Coast break the law here. I have an agreement with Coast that allows me to download the entire interview for a set cost per month. But truncating the MP3s breaks that contract.

    No, I believe the ignorant one would be you. I won't go to your childish level of name calling. For what it's worth, it's called an analogy. When you compare 2 things that are in most respects very dissimilar but have SOME similar characteristics. No, I am not saying that DRM is equal to Hate Crimes. I'm saying that in MY opinion, both are very stupid. There is a similarity (hence the analogy) in what the government is trying to enforce. In one case, it's penalizing you for what your are thinking. In the other, for what you might do. Thinking bad thinks is NOT illegal but you will get penalized further for doing the exact same thing as somebody else if you're thinking bad thoughts. DRM is attempting to do the same thing (except instead of jail time it's a monetary penalty) for what you MIGHT do.

    You might want to try thinking things through before shouting that somebody is stupid simply because they look at things a little differently than you do.

    Once again, it's looking like this is less about "choice" and much more about protecting one industry's increasingly obsolete business model.
    Mike, I believe you have misunderstood that industry's business model. Their true business model is that of using money to corrupt lawmakers. And far from being obsolete, business is better than ever.

    If ya wanna blame anyone

    If you want to blame someone, the Clinton administration would be the ones to blame. Bush doesn't care one way or another about copyrights. Clinton's administration is the one that signed the DMCA into law. Also Bush is nowere near the biggest "big government" administration. Oddly, that was the FDR administration during our depression, which had several of its laws ruled unconstitutional and after the supream court made those rulings, FDR tried to pass a law to bypass the courts. Bush aint the problem, the RIAA is the problem. Also, anyone who wants socialism, is, no offence, a moron. Look at Canada. Their healthcare is socialized, and I know several hospital nurses that became nurses in canada and said that their healthcare system was in such awful shape that they couldnt stand it. America needs to take Hong Kongs aproch. The nation of Hong Kong (which is independant of their commie neighbors) has little to no welfare, no subsidized healthcare, no social security, little regulation at all of buisnesses and they set taxes at about 15%. Their government makes a net profit, and they are one of the few governments that do. I think America needs to become more capitalist.

    The government isnt the problem here though, the problem here is the RIAA. I would say the best thing you can do is pirate music and use an OS like Linux which does not support trecherous computing based digital restictions managment.
