As you may have seen, the D.C. Circuit asked us to clarify our
standing to challenge the FCC's broadcast flag rule (the rule
mandating DRM in HDTV tuners made after July 1, our suit is ALA v.
The Court wants to see concrete instances of injury. That's good
news, because if they get over the standing hurdle, they seemed
sympathetic to our arguments on the merits, that the FCC didn't have
jurisdiction to make the rule.
We've got plenty of good evidence, but more can only help. An
organization such as EFF has standing to sue over injuries to its
members, so if any of you are EFF members and have built or plan to
build HDTV systems in the U.S. and would be affected by the broadcast
flag rule, please contact me offlist, wendy at eff.org, if you might be
willing to help us tell the court about your situation.
