RIAA Wants to Hack Your PC

“If the current version of the USA Act becomes law, the RIAA believes, it could outlaw attempts by copyright holders to break into and disable pirate FTP or websites or peer-to-peer networks.”

Apparently the RIAA feels that this would maintain the status quo, ensuring that current Federal law, which gives them these rights (?!), wouldn’t be overturned. Yeah.

Update: Looks like their efforts failed, thank goodness. See Lisa Rein’s weblog on Oreillynet for more information and an update.
