Stop the Broadcast Flag (Again)

The Broadcast Flag is legislation that would let companies control what you are and aren’t allowed to do with your VCR / TiVO / hard drive etc. It’s been successfully blocked by the forces of good in the past, but we have to do it again as the TV and movie lobbyists are mounting another backdoor push.

Below are the congresspeople who are trying to push through the Broadcast Flag. If they represent you, please, please call. Hell, even if they don’t represent you, it would be a big help. And if you can call this afternoon, it make the most difference (it only takes about 90 seconds, really).
