Help Fight the Broadcast Flag!
I believe that one day, eventually, people will realize that electronic rights are as important as civil rights. We entered the era where information is power long ago but our laws have consistently lagged behind the pace of new technology.
To make a large issue simple: The Broadcast Flag is an attempt by the MPAA to use the FCC’s powers and impose copy controls on just about every form of digital media. Remember the days of recording your favorite shows or movies on your VCR? As the VCR goes the way of the Dodo you may lose that ability.
