It's definitely a topic worth bringing to people's attention but I suspect there may be a slightly more sinister twist.
How about if the SSSCA and its approved protection methods only applied to content from large media groups, film studios, etc. and nobody else could protect their copyrighted materials?
This seems to be the case with DVD at the moment, only the big studios can copy protect their DVDs. Home users and independent filmmakers obviously have no need to protect their intellectual property.
