Digital liberties under attack

I’ve been following the Darknet blog for a while, which is designed to accompany the book of the same name. The subtitle – Hollywood’s War Against The Digital Generation – makes it pretty clear which side of the fence it’s on.

In today’s update, Darknet lists the top 10 digital liberties under assault, which includes stupid laws such as the INDUCE act and wheezes such as trusted computing. I’d add a few of my own to the list, such as the way in which copy protection is likely to kill the second hand market for music CDs and other media.
