Ed Felten’s ongoing chronicle of the state DMCA scandal is an extraordinary service to the Web community, and three weeks ahead of the EFF, which has just take a position.

No one is doing as much as Ed to monitor and publicize the fact that the Motion Picture Association of America is rewriting state laws to limit our fair-use rights even further than the federal DMCA laws. That this is being done in states with virtually no interest in helping the MPAA and every interest in preserving their citizens’ rights is a national scandal.

Where are the national media on this issue? Where is Congress?
