I'd like to believe that the Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act (which mandates copy protection in
all electronic devices) is so ridiculous that it can't possibly pass
into law. However, I'm not willing to take the chance. I've written a letter to California Senator Feinstein
(who is unfortunately one of the proponents), asking her to reconsider.
I'll also email, fax, and call her offices. I'm sending a similar letter
to Senator Boxer.
companion legislation may soon be introduced into the House, I'm also contacting my Representative. We may soon have two bills to stop.
If you care about this issue, please contact your senators and representatives.
If you don't want to track them down yourself,
DigitalConsumer.org will do some of the work for you.
