A group of companies trying to control the computing world by disguising their plans as "increasing security". The laws proposed for 2006 (which, the state of the American government, I don't see NOT passing) will make it illegal to:

- write and compile non-TCPA software
- sell non-TCPA hardware

TCPA cuts down what you can do with your comptuer. Freeware and open source go right out the window.

"But can't I just get Linux?"
Think again... TCPA is in love with the Fritz chip... which is HARDWARE.
Once you can't do anything with computers, then nobody will be able to use them for bad stuff! See? It's simple! TCPA makes it possible!
