Valenti, Alone and in a Bind

For Jack Valenti, President and CEO, Motion Picture Association Of America (MPAA), being out of the agreement reached between the RIAA/Business Software Alliance (BSA)/Computer Systems Policy Project would allow him to have his cake and eat it too, or so he thought. While "IT signatories agree to oppose any efforts to rupture or decay the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, such as that recently introduced by Reps. Boucher and Doolittle,... We [MPAA] are not prepared to abandon the option of seeking technical protection measures via the Congress or appropriate regulatory agency, when necessary, such as the adoption of the broadcast flag or closing the analog hole." - (I guess you DON'T have a right to analog!)

Now Valenti finds himself alone facing a re-energized front under the Alliance for Digital Progress, a broad coalition of consumer groups, tech associations - even the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) - without the help of its otherwise dependable ally, the RIAA.

"We are not the enemy. We are not at war with the IT community. Which is why I am shaking my head in wonderment at this million-dollar campaign to deride us."

The true irony is that several of the ADP members are signatories to the agreement that took the RIAA out of the legislative picture (at least as concerns the Hollings bill), including the Business Software Association. It is also unclear whether the Alliance would support fair use legislation proposed by Reps. Boucher & Doolittle. Seems they like cake too!
