When the FCC asked about unlocking set-top boxes, the Copyright Office ran to the MPAA

[N]ewly released internal documents from the United States Copyright Office reveal that literally the first thing it did when it learned that the Federal Communications Commission was seeking comments on unlocking set-top boxes was to call on the MPAA and its member companies — and shortly thereafter, it released a highly controversial comment stating that movie companies should have the right to dictate the features of these devices and exercise a veto over the them. – Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing http://ift.tt/2eEhilJ
