> Hi all

> A quick update on DMCA hearings: two faculty colleagues and I

> stuff, to say the least. There was one guy (Steve Metalitz) from the "other side":
> Steve represents the International Intellectual Property
> Alliance...and you can imagine what THEIR stance on circumvention

> his time until the BIG show in DC this week (good luck to Carlton
> Jackson, Jeff Clark, Carrie Russell and others who will be testifying
> on our behalf)
>
> Attached are my comments. Both Mark Kaiser (director, UCB Language
> Center) and Abagail DeKosnik (prof Performance Studies) were terrific!
> We owe them thanks for jumping in.
