Fritz's Hit List #5

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: the Sony Aibo robot dog.

This product, which sends, receives, and digitally processes audio, qualifies for regulation as a “digital media device” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured Aibos will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate robot pets!
