Fritz's Hit List #18

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: the Kung Fu Fighting Hamster.

This six-inch hamster doll dances, swings a tiny nunchuck, and sings “Kung Fu Fighting” in an annoying voice. Because it plays a copyrighted recording (presumably from digital storage), it qualifies for regulation as a “digital media device” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured dancing kung fu hamsters will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate hamster dolls!
