Congress Unlikely To Change The DMCA

from the nothing-to-see-here... dept

Despite calls for a Senate hearing and a new bill looking into whether or not the RIAA is abusing its DMCA-granted subpoena powers, some are now saying that Congress is unlikely to adjust the law. It appears that the RIAA lobbyists have convinced a few of its “friends” to speak up in defense of the DMCA – saying that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the law, and the idea that it should even be revisited is preposterous. Instead, everyone should go back to minding their own business while letting an out-of-control industry with an obsolete business model sue 12-year-olds for daring to listen to the music they like.
