Congress is currently considering a bill (H.R. 3261) that does for
facts what the DMCA did for copyright and innovation--it will prevent
the public from accessing and using information in ways that are
guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

When was the last time you used the Internet to check the weather?
Look up an address or phone number?  A sports score?  A stock
portfolio?  Although these are all simply facts, your ability to access
and use this information could soon be locked away, inside someone
else's database.

Save your right to get the facts!  Log in to Public Knowledge's Action
Center and tell your Representative to oppose unreasonable database


Keeping an eye on Washington for you,
