Right-to-tinker maven Ed Felton is skeptical that copyprotection would be placed in the network. “From an engineer standpoint, that assumption looks wrong to me,” he says. But what if we looked at Fritz “not an engineer” Holling’s perspective? The point of my article is that Congress is pushing copyprotection in the network, whatever engineers would argue is ideal. A differend DRM would undermine that push. (But so too would a different Congress for that matter.)
