Declan McCullaugh has alerted his readers to a draft bill sponsored by
Fritz Hollings (D, NC) and Richard Stevens (R, AK), which would greatly
extend the scope of the current DMCA.  By some appearances, it would
make free software illegal in the US.

Full text of the draft is now available in HTML form on the Cryptome
website, as well as several mirrors.  A petition drive to oppose the
bill has been started.
