Re: [dvd-discuss] Security Systems Standards Certification Act [SSSCA]

Those would be worthy additions....but remember the intel testimony? COnsider 
too that RealNetworks, AOL and Yahoo are are in the situation that they have 
customers who want content that they can't provide. THey have customers who 
want stuff to work with that they can't (e.g. Mickey Mouse).It could get 
interesting...or not... But I'd have to agree about watching it...IT might be 
interesting to read a transcript later

After reading the SS-sca hearing transcript, I think HOllings and McCain were 
really surprised to hear some opposition that stated that they spend more in 
research each year than the Studios rake in as revenues.
