Given ALA's historically strong stand for intellectual freedom and my
belief that the majority of subscribers to the videolib list view Allied
Digital Technologies' actions as a form of censorship, I'd like to offer
this list as a formal mechanism with which to register our concerns with
this company's actions.

Milos, if you'll draft a short statement of protest, we can circulate it on
the list for signature of supporting members.
