Wheeler Reacts to Net Neutrality Plan
Someone was trying to game the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s electronic public comment system on net-neutrality rules.
But who? Was it supporters or foes of the open internet rules -- or was it the Russians?
A study has found more than 7.75 million comments were submitted from email domains attributed to FakeMailGenerator.com, and they had nearly identical wording. The FCC says some of the nearly 23 million comments on Chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to gut Obama-era rules were filed under the same name more than 90 times each.
And then there were the 444,938 from Russian email addresses, which also raised eyebrows, even though it’s unclear if they were from actual Russian citizens or computer bots originating in the U.S. or elsewhere.

Well the law in the states is if you own a physical copy (like a DVD, CD ect.) than you own the copyright for that media, so you're legally allowed to download a digital backup should the physical copy get compromised.
