A Broadcast Flag For Digital Radio?

from the when-will-they-learn dept

The RIAA isn't exactly known for understanding concepts like fair use, or that giving consumers what they want generally helps to grow a market, but now they're just wasting everyone's time. Their latest move is to push for a broadcast flag for digital radio, so that you may no longer be able to record what you hear on the radio. In other words, just as the industry is trying to convince people to switch over to digital radio for the better sound quality, they're also going to be taking away the rights people have enjoyed for ages concerning what they can do with the content they hear.
