Fritz's Hit List #17

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: digital aircraft intercoms.

These devices, which let the pilot or co-pilot of an aircraft speak to passengers, qualify for regulation as “digital media devices” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured digital aircraft intercoms will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate aircraft intercoms!
