Electronic Frontier Foundation Opposes Snowe Legislation

As first reported by Mike and Sahar, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has voiced their opposition to the recently proposed Snowe APCPA legislation. According to their official website, the EFF is a non-profit organization that “has championed the public interest in every critical battle affecting digital rights.
From what I have been reading elsewhere, not only would this proposed bill be detrimental to small businesses who own domain names, but it could also hurt the First Amendment rights of Americans who express their view on the Internet. As people continue to examine this bill and its implications, I hope they realize just how impactful this would be on anonymous free speech and domain ownership.
