Two very different realities.=20
In my opinion, both very silly:

The naive French law makers:

The simply plain ignorant US law makers:
The Digital Transition Content Security Act would embed anticopying
technology into the next generation of digital video products. If it
makes its way from Capitol Hill to the Oval Office and becomes law,
the measure will outlaw the manufacture or sale of electronic devices
that convert analog video signals into digital video signals,
effective one year from its enactment. PC-based tuners and digital
video recorders are listed among the devices.  [can you actually
believe this one?!?]
