For the last few years, a coalition of technology companies, academics
and computer programmers has been trying to persuade Congress to scale
back the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Now Congress is preparing to do precisely the opposite. A proposed
copyright law seen by CNET News.com would expand the DMCA's restrictions
on software that can bypass copy protections and grant federal police
more wiretapping and enforcement powers.
The draft legislation, created by the Bush administration and backed by
Rep. Lamar Smith, already enjoys the support of large copyright holders
such as the Recording Industry Association of America. Smith, a Texas
Republican, is the chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives
subcommittee that oversees intellectual property law.
