A few weeks ago word got out that the government was creating a high tech database project that could look into the activities of Americans and determine whether their everyday activities could be linked to terrorism. That made a lot of people upset. The project is being run by DARPA -- the military agency that brought us the precursor to the Internet. And the so-called Total Information Awareness project is being led by John Poindexter, a man made famous -- or infamous -- due to his role in the Iran/Contra scandal of the Reagan administration. Tonight on "Tech Live" we take a look at a group of folks who are using the Internet to fight back against the government's plan. You might be surprised by what they're doing. Also, we'll take a look at a new lawsuit that could determine whether or not you'll ever be able to record your DVD movies to blank DVD discs. That's something more and more people are already doing, and the movie studios aren't happy about it. Tune in tonight to find out what all the fuss is about. Finally, be sure to see tonight's "As Seen on TV" segment, where Brett Larson puts a unique hair dryer to the test. That should be good. Watch "Tech Live" tonight at 8:30 p.m. Eastern!
