Fritz's Hit List #16

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: talking pill bottles.

These pill bottles, designed as an aid to visually impaired patients, play a recorded audio message to identify themselves, so they qualify for regulation as “digital media devices” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured talking pill bottles will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate pill bottles!
