The scary part is that the monetary backing for the bill is enormous. Notice how you have never heard a peep about this bill on national news.
Follow the money trail. Some of the companies backing this bill own those networks.
But all is not lost. A Gateway Ad advocating a pro-consumer rights stance has been running on those same national networks, so the word is getting out, grudgingly.
Backers like Disney and AOL/Time Warner have a vested interest in seeing this load of crap become law.
As much of one as Microsoft, Intel, AMD, Gateway, RealNetworks and the rest of the tech sector and their representatives in congress have of ensuring that it fails.
Sen. Daschle has said he plans to kill this in committee, and if you're interested in supporting that move, call or write your elected congress-person and let them know how you feel about it.
