Cory Doctorow fisks Dianne Feinstein

On Boing Boing Cory Doctorow tears apart Senator Dianne Feinstein’s e-mail reply to constituents who wrote in about Broadcast Flag.

Practically every sentence in this letter is a lie:

As we move forward in the digital age, it is increasingly easy for
unauthorized copies of copyrighted works to be made and illegally
distributed.

Lie: Steps needed to put analog-broadcast video on your computer: 1. Install capture card; 2. Press record. Steps needed to put digital-broadcast video on your computer: 1. Install capture card; 2. Press record.

This leaves us with only one question: is DiFi stupid, or is she a liar? Either way, Feinstein should be ashamed of herself.
