EFF at DMCA Reform Hearing
After Daylong Debate, the Future of H.R. 107 Looks Bright
Washington, D.C. - Today at 10:00 AM., the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Trade, Commerce and Consumer Protection held a hearing on H.R. 107, also known as the Digital Media Consumers' Rights Act (DMCRA). Introduced by Rep. Rick Boucher (D-VA) and Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA), the DMCRA aims to reform the DMCA and require the recording industry to label CDs containing technological barriers that restrict consumers' rights.
EFF staff attorney Fred von Lohmann attended the hearing and reported that news from the Capitol is promising.
