After a blatant dismissal of the White House’s request that the photo of Obama firing a rifle not be altered or copied, a popular pro-copyright group is planning to assist the Obama administration in seeing that request to fruition.
In a daring move for total domination, lobbyists for the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and pro-copyright supporters nationwide are trying to fast-track a bill through congress that says it would become a crime to use the “Print Screen” button on your computer if the content you were saving contained copyrighted material.
The suggestion the lobbyists have made would require Microsoft and other manufactures of computer electronics to abstain from selling keyboards that have a Print Screen button.
Republican Congressman Pete Sessions of Texas said that it’s a step in the right direction to getting people to stop taking photos of everything, including police. “If we can stop them from pushing that button on their computer, we can stop them from taking pictures of government webpages and, hopefully, government employees. That includes police officers.”
An ACLU spokeswoman voiced her opinion on this issue today safely tucked away in an underground bunker - free from the prying eyes of US surveillance drones. Lindsay Baker of the ACLU told reporters, “They want to take pictures of us, but they don’t want us to take pictures of them. Now they’re trying to take away my Print Screen button.”
According to official sources, the FBI could be deployed with pliers nation-wide to inspect, and remove, any Print Screen buttons found in the United States.
