TAKE ACTION! SEND A MESSAGEHollywood is at it again, trying to control the design of new digital technologies. If the motion picture studios have their way, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will force all future televisions to include Hollywood-approved "content protection" technologies. Fair use, innovation and competition will suffer. Whatís more, the "broadcast flag" technology that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has proposed is so weak that it will do nothing to stem Internet redistribution of television programs. In fact, the only people hurt by this are legitimate consumers, innovators and researchers.
The FCC has promised a ruling before the end of October. We need you to tell the FCC that we donít need "broadcast flag" regulations that hurt competition, consumers and innovators.
