EFF alerta sobre los DRM en musica, videojuegos, software y cine

Vía Electronics Frontier Foundation.org.

Las cuestiones jurídicas siguen estando en el debate sobre el acceso a los contenidos on line. La EFF anima a pedir a la Federal Trade Commision de EEUU que frene los límites que imponen los sistemas mecánicos de control del copyright. Los conocidos DRM que "siguen" la pista del uso que se hace de las películas, cds, videogames o programas comprados.
Esta activa Fundación, anima a enviar cuestiones a la FTC (
drmtownhall@ftc.gov) con motivo de la conferencia que habrá en la Facultad de Derecho Seattle (Washington D.C.) el 25 de marzo de 2009.


EFF CALLS ON THE FTC TO MITIGATE DAMAGE CAUSED BY DRM.
In public comments submitted earlier this week, EFF explained
how DRM, backed by the anti-circumvention provisions of the
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), impedes innovation
and thwarts consumers' rights to make full use of their
digital music, movies, software, and videogames. EFF urged
the commission to study DRM's effect on competition in the
marketplace, investigate whether the effects of DRM are
fully disclosed to consumers, and promote a set of "Best
Practices" that, if followed, would help alleviate the
burdens of DRM for consumers.

EFF's comments were filed in conjunction with the FTC's
Town Hall on DRM, set for March 25 in Seattle. The Town
Hall is free and open to the public.
