For a direct attack on all our Freedoms, see:

*Music industry forces widely used journalist tool offline*

"The popular free software project “youtube-dl” was removed from Github
on Friday following a legal notice from the Recording Industry
Association of America claiming it violates U.S. copyright law..."


Remember the bad old days when the RIAA (and the UK equivalent) imposed
a tithe on ALL blank audio cassettes, regardless of whether you were
using them for dictation, your own music, or your own computer programs!

HDDs and SDDs next?...

All just a game of 'control' and 'money grabbing'?...

Judge for yourselves...
