The language contained in NPRM 02-230 is too broad and imposes too many
unintended consequences on persons involved in experimentation with Analog-to-
Digital and Digital-to-Analog technology who have no interest in illegally
obtaining or distributing copyrighted material. The civil court system provides
a means already in place for the entertainment industry to address copyright
violations. Burdening the federal criminal court system with these types of
violations will do a huge disservice to the citizens of the United States.
