“Broadcast Flag” Action Alert

In case you missed Cory’s posting on Boing Boing, we thought we’d make sure that all Street Techies know about the new EFF Action Alert asking you to email your Congresscritter about opposing any legislation that attempts to breath new life into the FCC’s broadcast flag legislation (which was unanimously struck down earlier this month).

Given all of the current media hoopla about Star Wars piracy (while the movie continues to break all box office records), now’s a good time to remind Congress that you don’t want the movie industry and the FCC dictating what sorts of digital media hardware you can have in your home.

The Alert is total push-button activism. All you do is enter your zipcode and press Submit to send a form letter to the appropriate lawmaker (or better yet, craft your own impassioned prose in the field provided).
