After sending a letter to my U.S. Senator, Jim Webb, expressing my deepest outrage against the DMCA and other intellectual property laws that encumber thinking, creativity, and the arts, I've received an interesting reply from the Senator.
According to Jim Webb, "You will be pleased to know that the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary is currently conducting hearings on the DMCA and other copyright issues."
He assures me that my own, and the rest of Virginia's, interests will be considered; but honestly people, if our interests were considered.... would we even have the DMCA?!
