New Yorkers For Fair Use

© Copyright for the Digital Millennium
  • The FCC is concerned you might record something on your VCR or Hard Drive. As a result, the FCC has anounced that all future VCR's must carry a special chip to prevent you from recording anything on TV. This is inspite of the fact that the federal Supreme Court had expressly claim this as Fair Use in the Famous Sony Betamax case. See the text here.
