    SubjectRe: SSSCA Hits the Senate
    Date
    The bill says that the protection scheme must be open source, so no M$ tax.

    I guess lots of Americans are going to tune in to European content if this
    bill passes. It should be a boon to Canada and Mexico too. Maybe we should
    support this bill...
