Brazil: Digital TV with Digital Rights Managements

Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Ideas, Law, Technology

Sérgio Amadeu [1] [pt] has just learned that the Brazilian National Standards Organization is considering to have Digital TV setup boxes with DRM (Digital Rights Managements). “It is unfortunate that such an issue is decided by a small group of technicians. This decision is not purely technical, it has extremely serious and extensive socio-cultural impact. Society should be heard. This is a topic of digital citizenship, the right of fair use and to save images the way people want.”
