Fritz's Hit List #25

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: digital church bells.

These systems play church bell noises from digital recordings, so they qualify for regulation as “digital media devices” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured digital church bells will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate church bells!
