NYT Article on Fritz's Hit List

Today’s New York Times has an article (on page 3 of the Business section), by David F. Gallagher, about Fritz’s Hit List. I love the title: “Robotic Dogs and Singing Fish in Cross Hairs.”

The article includes the first on-the-record response I’ve seen from Sen. Hollings’ office:

Andy Davis, a spokesman for Mr. Hollings, said the technology-minded critics of the bill were “missing the thrust of the senator’s argument,” which is that there is need for more protection of copyright works if online content and broadband Internet access are to flourish. Besides, Mr. Davis said, many details of the legislation remain to be worked out.
