Broadcast Flag Hearing Today

Public Knowledge posts information about today's Judiciary Subcommittee hearing, "Content Protection in the Digital Age," including a link to the webcast, at 2:45 PM EST.

Along with a bill giving the FCC a blank check to reimplement the once-killed Broadcast Flag Rule, the hearing has proposals on the table to close the "analog hole" and to restrict digital radio receivers. Like the Broadcast Flag, these additional controls won't stop "piracy," but they will block user innovation and non-infringing uses of media content.
