During a hearing that Orrin Hatch convened Tuesday on the "national security risks" of P2P networks, he asked a witness, "Can you destroy their set in their home?" referring to a home PC.
Randy Saaf of MediaDefender, a secretive Los Angeles company that works with the recording industry to disrupt P2P networks, replied by saying "nobody" is interested in that approach.
"I am," Hatch said. "I'm interested in doing that. That may be the only way you can teach someone about copyright...That would be the ultimate way of making sure" no more copyright is infringed.
Hatch continued, "My new record Now His Glory Shines has been backward masked with a message from the Holy Spirit. Basically, when a pireted copy of this is played on a home PC, the Holy Spirit sends a message to MS Windows to self destruct." Orrin Hatch MusicPosted by tstubbs at June 19, 2003 11:10 PM | Trackback
