Totally Not Cool

This is not cool. Click here to read.

I’m thinking of moving to Sweden, especially if any other bills get passed. I’m all for artist’s rights, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t help thinking that we’re moving more towards a police state here. The biggest problem is that the bill now doesn’t allow an archive of TV shows or webcasts, digital or otherwise. Diggnation is available for download and archive. Is it OK for me to keep a massive archive of Diggnation? How about podcasts? How about my backups? Oh, apparently we’re also only allowed to make one copy of a CD to a digital device (computer, iPod, etc.). But only one. So, am I allowed to keep it on my computer, and each of my 2 iPods? I bought my music – I should be allowed to listen to it any time I want.
