Consumers’ Rights to Use Digital Materials

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 18, 2002

A bi-partisan, bi-cameral resolution (S.J. Res. 51), sponsored by Rep. Cox (R-CA) and Senator Wyden (D-OR), calls for a Consumer Technology Bill of Rights. The sponsors seek changes to current copyright law for consumers who have legitimately purchased CDs, DVDs, e-books and subscriptions to satellite TV broadcasts. Such consumers should have the right to record or copy digital content for their own use/viewing at a future date.
