Well, the movie Nazi's are trying it again...

...."Congress is leaving a special gift under the tree for Hollywood's film
industry. Just before closing for the holidays, legislators introduced a
new proposal designed to curb redistribution of movies.The Digital
Transition Content Security Act would embed anticopying technology into the
next generation of digital video products. If it makes its way from Capitol
Hill to the Oval Office and becomes law, the measure will outlaw the
manufacture or sale of electronic devices that convert analog video signals
into digital video signals, effective one year from its enactment. PC-based
tuners and digital video recorders are listed among the devices."
