The U.S Senate is aiming to be a thorn in the side of this fledgling industry by trying to create some new law that will prohibit the ability to record music off of satellite radio. The proposal says that all satellite radio providers would be required to implement "reasonably available and economically reasonable" copy protection technology aimed at preventing "music theft" and restricting recording.
This is sure to be an issue for Sirius with their popular new recording capable device the Stiletto 100. It will be unfortunate if Sirius is forced to comply but, one would hope that users will still be able to record things like talk shows and the news. Surely subscribers would still be able to record Sirius original programming so, at least all is not lost.
