1 post in this topic

every passing day this is becoming more of a reality. In the current issue of popular science there is an article about the bill being pushed through congress to force hardware manufacturers to create hardware that checks and attempts to prevent piracy.

watch for the opportunity to fight this. Although, I suspect that this will actualy STIFLE the american economy further because people will start buying the equipment from overseas where the laws are not enforceable (yet).
