Hello:

To
manufacture the American Megatrends AMIBIOS8 bios, or any facsimile,
with
embedded Palladium, TCPA technology is neither excusable nor
tolerable. 

I

Folks,

I
just want to let you know that I will not buy any computer that uses
any
technique (DRM/TPM is the issue in question right now) that invades
my privacy
or otherwise runs programs on my computer that I am not in
control of.  Like
most computer-savvy people, I'm the one in charge of
buying computers for my
friends and relatives, and have bought a number
of computers lately.  I'm sure
someone will sell a computer that doesn't
have this junk, and I'll be buying
it, along with an amazing number of
other Americans. Remember the country we
live in and the values we stand
for? Remember what happened with the Pentium
III? You know this will
have exactly the same outcome.  Please don't make us
(and yourself)
suffer first.

I find the thought of placing
DRM chips and any TCPA soft/hardware into
private computers totally
abhorent.

To think, that if this is implimented that only "allowed" software
will
be accepted on MY machine is Nazi like in its control over what I do.

It should be as abhorent to you as it is to me, an American living with
the
freedoms that the constitution allows. 

What next, only web pages that have
the corect content will be allowed
to be viewed? 

Only the correct religious
text allowed? 

This is wrong, and I urge you not to make, and forceably
distribute your
AMIBIOS8 and TM5800 chips.

From:           
Subject:        TCPA-enabled BIOS

Message:

I am writing out of deep concern for the TCPA campaign.  TCPA
may
provide a trusted environment for corporations and for government
and
military systems, but home users operate on a completely different
basis. 
Every day, home users INTENTIONALLY run untrusted code.  Users
download games
and taskbar applications that contain spyware, and they
don't care.  Some
users are even happy to have spyware on their
computer.  Users, like me, that
find spyware and other "malware"
intrusive take the time and effort to remove
it ourselves.

TCPA represents a serious danger to home user's privacy. 
Trusted code
is not a concern of home users.  However, the simple fact is that
TCPA
will be a springboard for DRM technology.  I don't want to buy a PC
that
won't let me use my files.  While I certainly respect
intellectual
property rights of artists and corporations, Palladium and other
such
systems will, and I stress the word will, be used to eliminate
what
recording studios, movie studios and software companies perceive
as
piracy.

I also have concerns about the effect of TCPA and Palladium on
Linux,
BSD and other open systems.  I use FreeBSD on my home PC.  Will
TCPA
provide code, without license restriction to GNU or other programmers,
to
integrate into their operating systems? If I use Linux or BSD, does
my
operating have to be TCPA-enabled to boot? Will I or programmers
designing
these operating systems be sued or prosecuted under the DMCA
for simply using
and creating operating systems that are free of DRM
restrictions? All of these
issues trouble me.

For these reasons, I have no intention of purchasing
TCPA-enabled
systems, whether they be motherboards, processors, peripherals
or
software.  I will encourage others to follow suit.  As a consumer, when
I
use my PC, I want to feel assured that I can execute local commands
without
restriction, that I can listen to music or watch DVDs without
having that data
locked out or reported to an agency or company, that I
can customize my
operating system and software without running into
snags from motherboard or
processor-level trust restrictions.  Put
simply, I want to be able to use my
PC as I choose to, without
restriction.  Please take my comments, and a
consumer, into
consideration.  Marketing TCPA-enabled hardware to corporations
or
government agencies may be a good business decision, but do not take
away
the rights of consumers.

I have been using computers with AMI Bioses since the

end of free software (and free speech.)  It is absurd to rely on Microsoft to

Hello,

Just to
let you know that I refuse to buy any of your products in the future, as long
as you support TCPA/Palladium/DRM. Don't come and tell me that these are not
the same thing, I know. But TCPA will inevitably lead to enforced DRM. And I

Stop producing TCPA enabled BIOSes,

outdated business model.  In particular it contains the necessary features to
implement Microsoft's "Palladium" system which would destory fair use and
possibly Free operating systems such as Linux.

Gates Empire. I wouldn't want to ask Mr. Gates or the RIAA if I'm allowed to

that on any system of mine. Please don't start including TCPA systems in your
BIOSs as you'd lose another potent customer, as soon as I'd find those systems
in your products!

Please don't send me an informative mail telling me more of
Microsofts FUD arguments about the benefits of TCPA. I heard the arguments, I
decided TCPA is a Bad Idea.

I live in Germany, and thus I've first hand
experience with organisations that start out as wanting "only the best for the
citizens" and end up as being the former east german secret agency (STASI)
that was but a tool of oppression!

I like my computer system to be free. I

Message:
I run my own small company selling custom built high
spec computers. Part of the commitment I make to my customer is that the
hardware I build will be fully compatible with existing and future software
and also have optimal performance. TCPA is designed to prevent or limit access
to certain parts of the computer system and enforce the use of certain pieces
of computer code, this takes away from me, the system builder, the choice and
responsibility of which software I trust to run on the machines I build. The
BIOS rests at the core of the system and has the potential to affect the
entire system. If I cannot trust the BIOS (by having the option to replace or
modify it), then I cannot trust the rest of any system I make and so cannot
give the same guarentes that my customers expect.

While I have chosen and
used motherboards that use your chips for systems I have built, I must
regretfully inform you that I cannot buy or recommend to my clients any
computer hardware that contains your TCPA within them, including AMIBIOS8. 

I
hope that you will continue to produce chips that live up to your past
standards and are not crippled by TCPA, so that I may have the best products
with which to build my computer systems.

Subject:        RE: Do NOT implement
Date:           Tue, 4 Feb 2003 11:42:23 -0500 

Hello Chris, 

Thank you for taking time to contact us here at AMI.  

We 
would like to underline some relevant points about our announcement and
the
purpose of TCPA.  We urge you to please give us a minute of your time to
fully
understand what AMI is offering and thus be able to make a fully
informed
decision

It must be noted that AMI has not announced support for
Microsoft's
Palladium. Palladium is an initiative by an OS entity that is
slated for the
future.  To be honest, though we do know about it, AMI has not
begun any
development related to it.  At this point we have not made any
decisions on
support either. 

TCPA is completely optional to our customers
(OEMs, ODMs, CMs and other
system builders). They may choose to make it
available or not, depending on
the needs of their market.  We have had
requests from a number of customers
for this technology. 
Depending from the
motherboard manufacturer, you will continue to find
motherboards enabled by
AMIBIOS that do not feature TCPA. I must also add
that AMIBIOS is not the
first to offer this feature - There are already PCs
featuring this technology
or other BIOS vendors enabling this technology or
other hardware-based
security options based on encrypted authentication.

TCPA does not equal
Palladium.  While certainly there is some future
development overlap between
the two, TCPA is being introduced by OEM's as a
security option to protect
systems through hardware and firmware.  
The purpose of TCPA is to implement a
subsystem to protect computer clients
from software hackers, not DRM. It is
poorly suited, even from a technical
point of view, for DRM. DRM applications
might use TCPA applications or not,
and DRM can be introduced without TCPA. If
you are against DRM,  your
concerns should be expressed to the organizations
that promote it.

On TCPA goals and
functions:
http://www.research.ibm.com/gsal/tcpa/why_tcpa.pdf

On
misconceptions in circulating
papers:
http://www.research.ibm.com/gsal/tcpa/tcpa_rebuttal.pdf

Another
common misconception is that TCPA would not allow people to run
Linux. It
actually does not limit the ability to run Linux (or any other
open source
solution). Linux device drivers for TCPA are available as well.

In addition
to this, the TCPA FAQ document reports several protections for
those users
that are concerned with their privacy:

*	The system owner has ultimate
control and permissions over private
information and must opt-in to utilize a
TCPA subsystem.(...) A TCPA
subsystem can be disabled permanently
*	The
specification allows the system owner to create multiple and/or
anonymous
identities to enhance personal security and remove avenues for
identity
cross-correlation
*	Supports multiple certificate authorities to give user
choice
*	Code, applets or drivers used on a TCPA subsystem do not need to
be
signed, unless the Operating system used specifically requires it.

Please
refer to: TCPA
FAQ
http://www.infineon.com/cmc_upload/documents/048/002/TCPA_FAQ_1.pdf

As a
smaller company itself, AMI has always supported innovation and
creativity, as
these have been our main tools in competing against much
larger companies in
our industry.  We would not do anything that in our
minds would damage our
credibility or reputation for world class BIOS
solutions and will carefully
evaluate this type of feedback when it does
come time to examine any future
technologies.  We would also like to
recommend that anyone who is opposed to a
Palladium-type solution in the
future, please make that known to OEM's and
system builders.  As they are
our customers, we definitely listen to them in
terms of what they (and
hopefully their customers) will want in future
BIOS.

Thank you again for your time in contacting us and we hope that this
and
some of the links below will shed some light on AMI's
plans.

We are boycotting the

Palladium is rolled out,
Palladium-enabling hardware must be placed in most of 
the world's personal

computers meant for
home and business use without the buyer being told. 
Our boycott is aimed at
stopping Palladium-enabling hardware from being 
secretly forced into every
personal computer in world. We intend to stop 
Palladium before we cease to
own the computers in our own houses and offices.

To AMI -

I am just
writing to urge you to resist the temptations of so called "Trusted"
technologies such as Palladium/DRM which promise security but end up
restricting freedom.  It's goal is to further secure an already closed
marketplace.  Companies like Microsoft have done it before, continue to do it,
and with this new effort show no signs of changing their tune.  

I would urge
you once again to reconsider your participation in this goal, keeping in mind
the best interests of your customers and the freedoms which new technologies
promise and are able to best deliver when they are left in the hands of
users.

Message:
I
refuse to buy any product with DRM hardware. TCPA/Palladium chips are spyware
and I will boycott any company which attempts to force them on uninformed
consumers. A CPU with DRM enforcement circuitry is by definition NOT a
general-purpose computer, and TCPA/Palladium is a transparent attempt to
restrict the consumer's freedom to compute via a bait-and-switch technique. 
Customers are not in a position to appreciate the difference between a truly
general-purpose computer and a DRM-crippled chip whose purpose is to grant
control of one's computer to others. Though the DMCA is unlikely to survive
Constitutional scrutiny for much longer, while it is still on the books it can
be combined with TCPA to essentially outlaw free software itself. As a member
of the free-software community, as a student-teacher, and as a computer
scientist I will oppose TCPA and Palladium with every legal means at my
disposal. 

And I will be vocal about it. I am in training to become a teacher
of computer science. One of the things I did more recently was to tutor a
class in Computability Theory. In this course, tomorrow's students are taught
to understand what a general-purpose computer is. I will explain to them why
DRM-enforcement CPU's do not truly fit the definition.  

I help people make
computer buying decisions on a regular basis, because I'm the local "computer
guy." So not only will I refuse to buy devices from AMI myself---I will also
recommend vigorously against the use of any DRM-enabled hardware products and
will tell people to stay away from the companies who produce such inferior
products. There are thousands of other "local computer guys" such as myself,
and they'll all say the same.

Dear sir or
madam,

I am just one user of computers; however, in my 38 years on this
planet I have owned approximately ten computers. In my job, I am responsible
for the purchase (annually) of 10-50 systems. I will NOT purchase a system
that promotes or allows Digital Rights Management or enables Microsoft's
Palladium system. 

If I want to read a file on my computer, that's my
business. If I want to listen to a CD on my computer, that's my business too.
The ultimate aim of DRM is to control people; however, in the case of the
Internet and computers, it is impossible to control all of the people all of
the time. We will always find a way to freedom; it would be better if
companies were trying to work with the consumers who use their products
instead of trying to lie to them, deceive them, and, yes, defraud them. I want
to be able to use my computer the way I use a notebook and a pen, the way I
use a television and a VCR, the way I use a PDA - in short, I insist on having
final control over the products I purchase. I will never buy a Transmeta-built
CPU chip, nor will I buy an AMI BIOS motherboard.

Message:
Computers
need to be "general purpose".  The reason that we use the computers we do
today is that other more restrictive offerings failed.  As soon as the
neighbor down the street can do something with their computer that I can't do
with mine, I'll want to get what he has.  Change "down the street" to "in
another country" and you will understand why this effort will not only fail,
but hurt the US economy in the process.  We are already to the point where
people here order computers from Japan and Taiwan because they have more
features than those offered here.  With so little of the actual production of
hardware taking place here you can be sure that there will be a TCPA/Palladium
version of everything for Americans, and a "normal" one for everyone else. 
There will almost certainly be a healthy black market for the un-neutered
equipment here too.  Seems like everyone will benefit except the consumer
doesn't it?   Perfect!

TCPA/Palladium is a trap.  While in the long run it
will hurt everyone in America, in the short term it will benefit a few of its
signatories.  Microsoft will benefit most, because it's software will be the
primary "enforcer" of whatever restrictions TCPA/Palladium needs to place on
user's activities.  Thus, providers of other products will once again be the
water boy for the Microsoft war machine against other operating systems.  To
be sure, TCPA/Palladium might slow down software piracy and illegal music
trading, but that benefit will be more than compensated for by the fact that
ONE COMPANY will be the primary keyholder for all of this content, and you had
better bet that they will extract more than their fair share of the booty.  It
will be one more expense for the record companies to pass on as overhead to
the consumer.   As it is, hardware makers have to PAY Microsoft to certify
their products for compliance.  This pyramid scheme will now trickle down to
every software developer as well.  Now maybe at last Microsoft will be able to
lower the prices for Windows and Office (give them away even) as they will
collect money for every other product sold, hardware or software in this
country.  For technology company executives, did you make money backing
yourselves out of the Pentium ID number fiasco?  If not, then you probably
won't make money from this either.  Did you strike it rich going down the
proprietary Rambus memory dead end?  In the short term Rambus benefited, but
in the long run even they were hurt by their own wheeling and dealing. (To
record company executives:  Are you TOTALLY naive, or does it just seem that
way?  You DO realize that Microsoft, and not you, will control music
distribution in this country if this scheme were to work right?)

The "good"
news is this:  Just as governments of other countries (as well as state and
local governments) are having doubts about continuing to pay through the nose
for Microsoft products, while at the same time having to pay the burden of
buggy, insecure code, they will no doubt have even graver doubts about running
a box that is locked up, knowing that the keys are held by a company in
Seattle.   Linux will continue to thrive, if not here, then elsewhere and in
the end, we will buy hardware, software and know-how from countries that
remain FREE.  The "brain drain" that has given this country an edge since it's
founding can certainly be made to work in reverse, and it will by ideas such
as TCPA/Palladium that cause that to happen.  It would appear that a
brain-drain of sorts has already taken place in the boardrooms of the other
companies signing on to this.

In short:  It's a bad idea.  It won't achieve
it's objective.  Most companies that participate will not benefit, but be
harmed.  In the end, American technology will be right back where we are now
having lost much momentum.

I have 6 computers of relatively modern vintage.  
They will run Linux and do everything I need them too for the rest of my days.
 I have hundreds of CDs in my collection and much of the music being put out
today is crap.  I don't NEED your new computers and I don't NEED your new
encrypted music, software or anything else.  Make my freekin day.  You'll only
hurt yourselves.

Message:
Hello,

DRM
technologies intrude too far in our homes, undermine too openly our civil
liberties, although there is some pro-copyright rationale behind them. I
think, DRM haven't got to much of resistance from general public for some
technical reasons. If implemented it will meet significantly more of public
outcry than it currently does.   You, manufacturers, your children and
grand-children, judges and justices, policemen and lawmakers, military and
government, all will have to use personal spying-on-them computers. This
situation just cannot last forever. Sooner or later DRM technologies will be
repealed and all resources spent on their development will be simply wasted.
Regards,

"AMIBIOSŽ enables secure and

No thanks! I won't even use
willingly any AMIBIOS8-positive Computer, and for sure, I won't buy one.
What
the TCPA persues is obviously an unprecedented attempt on the personal
freedoms of individual computer owners, in a terrifying dimension, and I won't
support any software or hardware that implements or supports these
technologies in any way.
Though you announce, that TPM may be disabled through
the bios, this won't help much, if one day, systems simply won't run without
this option on.
Therefore I would urge you to abandon any affiliations to
these technologies, as they clearly mean a huge step to the undermining of
personal freedoms and privacy.

Thank you,
yours,

implore you, do not give companies the ability to invade our personal
computers!

I just heard the horrible thing
about this so called PALLADIUM that will be coming out.  This is to let you
know that I will use my best effort to make sure this product is NOT sold
ANYWHERE by boycutting it, and making sure it is not available in my store. 
If worse comes to worse I will boycott all companies involved.  

I advise
your company thinks twice about this horrible nazi system, it will
backfire.

This is quite simple.  In the last 10

you to pursue this course of action. Purchasers are consumers too.

I remember how
unreliable this sort of stuff was in the 80s.  Imagine having YOUR credit
info, user licenses, DNA, fingerprints, SSN, credit card numbers, PIN/PIDs,
bank routing information, browser history, and so on being monitored.  Further
imagine how even a single error can cost you time and money, trying to fix it,
and that's if the vendors cooperate.

Oh wait, I bet since you work at a
company working to make that possible to force on users, vendors, and sysops,
I bet your workstation has more then a few invasive programs running that you
don't know about.  Think about this.  Executives unfortunately never see these

                 REF:rf/ntl-fgn
 
Dear Friend,
Please do not be disturbed
about this mail as I am contacting you for the first time through this medium,
while nursing no doubts that you will be of great assistance to this business
proposal I am about disclosing to you for our both mutual benefit.

I am
Dr.Jeffrey Fuga, the Project Director of Nitel at the above address.Following
my intentions of owning an offshore investment, I was urged to contact a
foreigner to assist in facilitating the immediate release of $14Million United
States Dollars into his/her bank account to jointly execute my motive of
securing an offshore investment.

This was because Nigeria's civil service
code of conduct does not allow a civil servant to own an offshore account or
investment outside the shores of Nigeria.

Sequel to this, I was able to
contact a foreigner (Mr. Jim Walsh) an American based in Nigeria to assist
with the transfer.

He agreed and we proceeded in procuring all documents
necessary to facilitate the immediate release of the funds into his custody
using him as a Project Consultant to the Nigerian Telecommunication.

The
money was as a result of an over-invoiced contract on contract number
"NTL-FGN01/PED-00" for the procurement, supply and installation of
Telecommunication equipment to Nitel egional offices up to the tune of
$52Million United States Dollars.

It was awarded to a Swiss Contractor who
executed the contract and was fully paid i.e $38Million United States Dollars
leaving aside $14Million United States Dollars.

Final payment approval was
granted on behalf of Mr. Jim Walsh by the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF) to
the paying bank while waiting for the payment application from him to the bank
but he suddenly died of Cardiac Arrest leaving no Next of kin/beneficiary to
the funds.

It is as a result of this, that I am contacting you to please
stand as the next of kin to Mr. Jim Walsh and new beneficiary to the funds to
enable the funds to be transfered into your custody.

All documents to back up
your claim will be giving to you adequately while a emorandum of Understanding
(MOU) will be reached between us to safe guard our both interest in line of
this transaction.

I am willing to compensate you with 25% of the total funds
while the rest 75% will be for me for the investments in your country as well
as assuring you that this transaction is 100% risk free and legal.

If this
proposal is okay to you, please kindly get back to me to enable me demand
certain informations and briefing for the commencement of this
transaction.

Please always quote the reference number above in all
correspondences 
to me while confidentiality should be our watch word.
I await
your urgent response.

Sincere regards,
Dr. Jeffrey Fuga,
Project
Director,
Nitel.

Dear
Sir,
Sequel to the secretive arrangement in regards of the shipment of your

contract
sum, I wish to inform you that all necessary modalities have been

automatically
concluded and have left Nigeria to London via your Country
today by 
Express
Cargo Flight.

Note carefully the content of the crate is
"MONEY" but I did not
discloseit to the Courier Services as Money, rather I
informed them 
that
the cratecontain  Vital "DIPLOMATIC DOCUMENTS" belonging
to my client  
(that?s
you). Furthermore, the weight of the consignment is
220kg but I manage 
to
pay120kg, which cost US$75,600.00. On no account should
you disclose  
thecontent
of the crate with the Diplomatic Courier Services
for fear ofbetrayal. 
So
do  not allow them to know that the content is
money.

In the meantime, contact the Diplomatic Courier Services on  

Tel:44-77-43352252
to know the actual situation with the consignment and
alsogive them   
your
address where the consignment will be delivered and
thenget back to me 
as
soon as possible so that I can give you the
shipmentdocument. 
Meanwhile,
I will be coming over to your country
immediately the consignment 
arrives
in your Country for my 10%
share.

Congrats and remain blessed.

Best Regards,

Yours
faithfully,

Dr.ALHAJI_USMAN

Subject:        Palladium

Message:
I wish to express my deepest
dissapointment that your company plans to produce palladium technology-based
hardware.  This hardware, among other things, will greatly threaten and
infringe upon the open-source software movement, if only by forcing
hard-working developers to re-orient their solutions and/or create new ones
merely to be able to have their software continue to be accepted.  While
Microsoft and other palladium advocates have attempted to assure everyone that
this will not be the case, open-source advocates have already detailed many
scenarios in which this new technology will do that very thing, as well as
providing great potential for privacy infringement and unacceptable corporate
control and involvement in the data and operations of personal computers.  I
urge you to continue to provide high quality hardware which is not
palladium-based and warn you that this will be a major decision-point for me
when I make hardware purchasing decisions.  I urge you to respect and value
the positions of your faithful customers on this subject, of which I am one. 
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear shortly that your fine company is
dealing with the palladium topic properly.

sincerely,
Jeffery Coleman
