Memo to Directors: “Super” DMCA Legislation in the States

The Motion Picture Industry Association of America (MPAA), cable operators, and others are aggressively promoting model legislation in quite a few states that would amend state telecommunications and cable security laws to address concerns over digital piracy. The legislation, already law in 7 states, is considered overly broad and raises a number of concerns for libraries, consumer electronics manufacturers and retailers, public interest and privacy advocates, and more. National library associations have neither signed off on the revised legislation nor are actively opposing it, in part because it appears that in the rush to move this legislation, a number of versions of the revised bill have been introduced in the states.
