From Andrew Orlowski's story today at The Register:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/6/20738.html

    Demonstrations continue, with more taking place in twenty cities
    across the United States yesterday. Speaking from the San Jose rally
    Electronic Frontier Foundation's Intellectual Property Attorney
    Robin Gross told The Register that Government lawyers had listened
    'carefully' to the case put by the EFF last week, but that without
    strong congressional support opposition to Sklyarov's arrest and the
    DMCA would continue in the form of direct action.

...well, aside from the fact that that's San Francisco (our southern
neighbor must be glowing), seems that Robin's calling for some form of
Congressional protest and awareness-raising.

Grassroots is definitely one avenue, but another is to identify existing
power groups that have a vested interest in this issue, opposed to the
DMCA.

Thoughts?
