Fritz’s Hit List #29

Today on Fritz’s Hit List: logic analyzers.

These devices, which are standard equipment in electronics laboratories, record electrical signals in digital form, so they qualify for regulation as “digital media devices” under the Hollings CBDTPA. If the CBDTPA passes, any newly manufactured logic analyzers will have to incorporate government-approved copy restriction technology.

Fight piracy – regulate laboratory equipment!
