If Hollywood studios have their way, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will force all future televisions to include Hollywood-approved content protection technology called the "broadcast flag". Fair use, innovation and competition will suffer. Whatís more, the broadcast flag technology that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has proposed is so weak that it will do nothing to stem Internet redistribution of television programs. In fact, the only people hurt will be innovators, researchers, and law-abiding consumers.

The FCC has promised a ruling before the end of October. We need you to tell the FCC that we donít need broadcast flag regulations that hurt competition, consumers and innovators.
