There has been a flurry of blogging about the FCC's apparent willingness to adopt the broadcast flag. Donna has many of the interesting links. Nice to see Senator McCain getting back into Larry Lessig's good books with his letter to FCC Chairman, Michael Powell, on the issue. He's concerned about the impact on consumers.
Brad Templeton's new pledge of allegiance is amusing:
"I pledge Allegiance to the Flag
of the prohibition of copying
and to the monopoly for which it stands
One protocol, under Valenti*, innovation-free,
without liberty or fair use for all.
*Unlike God, there is no dispute over whether Valenti's
name can appear in the pledge."
