A short thing I wrote for today's NYT business section: Robotic Dogs and Singing Fish in Cross Hairs. It's about Fritz's Hit List, created by Edward Felten, an associate professor at Princeton. The list critiques anti-piracy legislation by Senator Ernest "Fritz" Hollings by pointing out the vast array of "digital media devices" that would be required to have built-in copy protection under the proposed law. My favorite item on the list is the TinkleToonz Musical Potty, which is clearly a must-have for content thieves everywhere.
