FoxTrot by Bill Amend for December 30, 2007
Jason: I can't wait for Congress to get back to work. Peter: Why's that? Jason: Imagine you're a lawmaker, and you got an iPod or Zune as a Christmas gift... what's the first thing you'll want to do? Why, transfer your music and video collections onto it, of course. But wait! There's a problem! While it's legal to copy music from your CDs onto the device, it's not legal to do the same thing with your DVDs! Nooooo! And whose fault is that? Yours. Because you voted for the stupid digital millenium copyright act back in 1998. Naturally, your first order of business next month will be to repeal that boondoggle. Peter: What makes you think they all got iPods for Christmas? Voice: Which one of you kids charged $85 thousand worth of stuff with my Visas?!?
