Support the DMCRA

The EFF have introduced a bill to Capitol Hill (cue Schoolhouse Rock song) which would amend the reviled DMCA. Specifically, it allows the reintroduction of "Fair Use" which the **AA are trying to quash. Consumers would be allowed to make backups of their media, provided they are not using it illegally. I can't begin to express how incensed I get every time I have to circumvent some lame attempt at copy protection on a CD, just so I can rip it for my MP3 player.

The EFF make it easy for you to send a letter to your representative. Just fill out their form, edit the body of the email (if you wish), and send. I've already sent my email.
