I find it hard to believe that this will happen but maybe I'm just being naive. Can anyone explain to me how the FCC is going to regulate the entire world? Heck the RIAA (or Canadian version) hasn't stopped file sharing in Canada and its unclear whether or not it is illegal to so in Canada. Won't other countries continue to make devices that can record audio broadcasts and/or from the Internet? Sure they can make feeds that require a special player to play but there is nothing stopping a person from recording the sound played through their speakers and circulating that around. Also, last time I checked, I can tune into my local radio station and record it either on a cassette tape or onto my computer very easily and distribute it in other formats on servers located in other countries. Am I missing something here?
