Multimedia, AV A couple of days ago we talked about how the RIAA and NAB are planning on asking US Congress to mandate FM radio chips inside every cell phone. This plan was met with some ridicule, so the NAB decided to write a blog post addressing the critics. Most of the post is overshadowed by an overdose of America's favourite national pastime: WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE. 9/11!

I'll go along with NAB's suggestion that FM chips in cell phones be mandated. In exchange, the same legislation requiring the chips will also permanently free FM broadcasters from paying royalties on copyrighted material they broadcast. Furthermore, said legislation will repeal the DMCA and software patents.

There you go. A reasonable compromise that I'm sure American industry will support.

I feel safer already.
