Kevin Marks has a new blog dedicated to taking the copyright fight to the politicians:
- Possibly leading questions – these serve the purpose of raising the issues in a public meeting, but it may be better to ask more neutral variants to get a true opinion from the candidate.
Do you believe that vigilante attacks by the entertainment industry on your computer should have the support of law?
Will you promise to vote against the Peer To Peer Piracy Prevention Act?
Do you want to make all current computers models illegal, and insist they are replace by copy-prevention machines?
Will you promise to vote against the Consumer Broadband Digital Television Promotion Act?
Do you trust computers to judge and enforce complex issues of copyright law?
Will you work with Rep. Boucher to repeal the parts of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act that give computer code the force of law and make disagreeing with it a criminal offence?
Ask these questions of your candidates, and blog the answers, with the appropriate tag as described below. Set up a state blog if your state doesn’t have one yet, and email me the url. so I can link to it from here,
Find out when your candidates are addressing public meetings, list them on your blog, go to the meetings and ask these quesions, and report back.
