DigitalConsumer's FAQ is one of the better I've seen. This site, along with the EFF should help us all when we write our elected representatives. I like how DigitalConsumer makes a way for us to fax a letter, but nothing goes further than a letter in an envelope with a stamp.

What a great idea! A positive assertion of rights, instead of a constant state of panic about the latest DMCA/SSSCA/whatever.

One thing they should add to their Bill of Rights is the right to be free from taxes on digital devices and blank media that go straight into the pockets of copyright holders as "compensation" for piracy.
