UPDATE II: Copyright Filtering in Stimulus Bill

As Alex discussed yesterday, the battle over a Hollywood-backed amendment to the stimulus bill that would allow Internet Service Providers to filter their networks for copyright violations is not yet over. The conference committee for the bill is meeting as I write this, and for that reason, we have launched a new action alert to ensure that the House and Senate conferees understand why this amendment is bad as both a substantive and a procedural matter, and should not be included in the final stimulus package.

Again, the conference is happening now and is expected to conclude by day's end. So please, act NOW. We'll keep you updated. And thank you!
