Submission + - Former US Register of Copyrights Says New Technology to be Presumed Illegal (techdirt.com)

TrueSatan writes: Reminiscent of buggy whip manufacturers taking legal action against auto makers the former US Register of Copyrights Ralph Oman has given an amicus brief in the Aero case http://jstyre.com/misc/Oman_Amicus_20120921.pdf stating that all new technology should be presumed illegal unless and until approved by Congress. He goes further in stating that new technology providers should be forced to apply to Congress to prove that they don't upset existing business models.
