Broadcast-Flag Burning In Court, To Massive Cheers

"Tigger" time:


The "Broadcast Flag", a restrictive technology mandate, has been burned in court.

American Library Association v. FCC, No. 04-1037b

Much punditry, so I don't have much to add besides cheerleading - Yay! Yay! Yay! (It's problematic for essayists to write posts which just cheer, but such sentiments are also community-builders, so perhaps I can be forgiven this one).
