||LEAFLETTING CAMPAIGN A SUCCESS|
Thanks to everyone who made Friday's leafletting campaign a success. We have been receiving reports from around the world of productive events - our voices HAVE been heard.

||TELL CONGRESS TO STOP THE DMCA|
The library of congress is holding hearings on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the law being used in the DVD suit). They want to know how it has affected you and what YOU think of it.

||PROGRESS REPORT ON H2K|
