I would like to add third party escrowed rights management as discussed by Dan 
Burke - what happens when the escrow agent becomes an escrew agent or simply 
messes up the records or they are destroyed. I'm afraid that may be beyond the 
LOC's ability to comprehend but for practical matters

Look at Cuecat and some of the more recent spyware. Without circumvention 
something worse happens. 

The instructions the LOC gives are precise and so directed as to close off 
public debate. I don't like that but I'm afraid that the LOC is totally ill 
equiped intellectually to understand much of anything regarding these issues.
