Fritz's Hit List #20

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: audio key chains (like this one).

These key chains play a prerecorded audio track, which presumably is stored in digital form, so they qualify for regulation as “digital media devices” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured audio key chains will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate key chains!
