Congress raises broadcast flag for audio

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:35 pm

Digital radio receivers without government-approved copy-prevention technology likely would become illegal to sell in the future, according to new federal legislation announced Thursday.

Rep. Mike Ferguson, a New Jersey Republican, said his bill–which would enforce a so-called “broadcast flag” for digital and satellite audio receivers–was necessary to protect the music industry from the threat of piracy.

Ferguson’s proposal would grant the Federal Communications Commission the power to enforce “prohibitions against unauthorized copying and redistribution” for both digital over-the-air radio and digital satellite receivers.

    I’m interested in Thailand Politics. I’ve heard that Thaksin Shinawatra has violated the Thai constitution and many other laws, Furthermore , his corruption and abusing his power to facilitate his family’s multi-billion baht businesses which are highly sensitive and will affect the security of Thailand, such as mobile phone service, a satellite, an airline and a TV channel. Thai people are now boycotting the April 2 election to stop a government that betrays and steals human rights from its people.

    So I’m looking for people to pray for Thaksin Shinawatra’s removal from being caretaker Prime Minister of Thailand. As since he came to power in 2001 , his clique , use mafia and autocratic style violated the press freedom. Furthermore , the violence in Southern part of Thailand , many provinces have suffered a lot of bombings , many people have been injured or killed , and then someone was abducted and had disappeared at the hands of the authorities. After Thaksin’s dissolution of parliament , he expected to buy votes in April 2 election for his party be back to power again.

    Chinese people always use mafia style to kill people and nature without any responsibility as for only their benefits. I pray for miracle things which can help that people to realize for their sins.
