National Call in Day

Today is the call in day to Save Betamax which seems silly at first, but in reality it's the decision about Betamax that made it a legal technology in terms of visual media copying that has allowed us to have CDs, DVDs, iPods, TiVo, etc.

The media industry becomes more fearful with each new technology. They argue that the availability of this technology violates their copyright rights. The Betamax VCR decision disagreed with this notion. Read the site for yourself.
