Can somone go to dslreports here:

and put in a comment for the readers to put in a call to the numbers listed 
below, also a followup email, and to their local congressmen demanding fair 
public representation on the panel, and to get NYLXS on the panel?  I believe 
the phone number of the Chris Israel or someone like that is included in part 
of the nyfairuse mirrored site.  lets get that phone number posted as well.

Also go to the New York posting of the info, here:,3815768~root=newyork~mode=flat

and post similar comments please.  We need to keep that post at the top of 
the NY section to get everyone's attention.  It also might get picked up by 
other news sites.  This is important.  It gives people something to do, even 
if they can't go to Washington.

Someone else should do it, I can't keep the comments flowing there, it will 
look like I'm talking to myself.

"Can't go to Washinton DC? Concerned about your rights to listen to 
music/watch videos/archive important documents/etc.?  Don't want expiring 
books?  This is what you can do:  

We need to pin down congressmen on this issue.  It is the only way we can 
advance forward at this point.

Thank you.
