We The People believe that anyone should have the right to play any Digital Media in the form of Music, Videos, or other content on any device in any format that we wish such as but not limited to DVD format using the libdvd codec, MP3 files with the lame codec, and Microsoft formated content using the win32 codecs.
Just because a company comes out with new proprietary codec to govern what devices can play their music, video, and other content does not mean that We The People should be restricted from viewing, listening to, or by other senses accessing the digital media or information we may have purchased or produced legally.
No entity should have the right to restrict how people should be able to access the data / media that they purchase.
We The People have certain inalienable rights. Being able to access our media with non-commercial software is a freedom that has been taken away from us by Micro$oft and other companies and devisions of the US Government such as the RIAA. The Government does not have the right to suppress freedom of speech or self expression in any way. By limiting the way that documented media or data can be accessed you are taking away the freedom of listening to free speech, the freedom of watching broadcasts, and of reading certain materials.
Please restore our rights and freedoms.
