Under this proposed bill you will no longer be able to rip cd's you bought to your MP3 player.
You will also be unable to unlock your smart phone, obtain internet services if you are charged with internet-related crime (even if a court date has not been set).
Recording with a PVR will be illegal as will obtaining the tools to unlock dvd's, cd's cellphones, etc.
Not only will this bill illegalize common practices, it will also make it illegal to circumvent the laws set forth in this bill.
Here is the Bill in its entirety.
