Commerce Dept wants public comments on DRM

Anonymous Reader writes: "The continued hoopla over online music has taken another turn in the Federal government. This time the United States Department of Commerce Technology Administration (TA) is holding a public workshop on digital entertainment and rights management (DRM). The information the TA collects will presumably find its way to the various hearings Congress holds as it tries to guage what laws it should impose upon Net music technology. This includes guaging how the voters will feel about any restrictions DRM will potentially bring to the content they read, view, and listen to. Those who cannot attend are urged to email their opinions using the address at the bottom of the article. Deadline for comments is July 11th.
