esmrg writes: On Dec. 8, the entertainment industry will for the first time meet to discuss 'content protection'. From the notice: "Our industry needs to chart a new course in its war against hackers, pirates and counterfeiters. In the years to come, I expect that Dec. 8 in Los Angeles will be remembered as the place where this new and highly effective industry initiative began." And: "I would like to encourage you and/or any other members of your team to join us as our industry launches an important new dialogue about taking the offense in the war against content piracy." Of course, as just stated, the frame of the dialogue is already set. Do these people realize they are waging war on the very people they depend on? Do they realize 'content protection' is impossible. Let them know what you think. Link to Original Source
