      Hollywood has fielded a shockingly ambitious piece of "Analog Hole"
      legislation while everyone was out partying in costume. Under a new
      proposed Analog Hole bill, it will be illegal to make anything capable
      of digitizing video unless it either has all its outputs approved by
      the Hollywood studios, or is closed-source, proprietary and
      tamper-resistant. The idea is to make it impossible to create an MPEG
      from a video signal unless Hollywood approves it.

      "How noble libertarianism, in its majestic equality, that both rich and
      poor are equally prohibited from peeing in the privately owned streets
      (without paying), sleeping under the privately owned bridges (without
      paying), and coercing bread from its rightful owners!"
