Fritz's Hit List #23

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: musical car horns.

These automobile horns play prerecorded digital sounds, so they qualify for regulation as “digital media devices” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured musical car horns will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate car horns!
