Fritz's hit list

October 1, 2002

Princeton computer science Professor Edward W. Felten is keeping track of what could be banned by the CBDTPA in Fritz's Hit List:

Most readers have probably heard me, or someone like me, say that the Hollings CBDTPA has far-reaching effects -- that it would regulate virtually all digital devices, including many that have nothing at all to do with copyright infringement. Though this argument is right, it is too abstract to capture the full absurdity of the CBDTPA's scope.To foster reasoned debate on this topic, I'm inaugurating a new daily feature here at, called "Fritz's Hit List." Each entry will give an actual example of a device that would meet the CBDTPA's definition of "digital media device" and would thereby fall under the heavy hand of CBDTPA regulation.
