I'm all for a petition on this, as I've reviewed the brief and am extremely impressed with the content. It is rare to see our representatives take a stand for what is right, and we need to support them when they do so.
I'm disappointed, however, in the quality of the petition linked here. Frankly, it is very poorly worded. I would be hard-pressed to take it seriously as a result of the incompetence portrayed by its content.
Can we possibly create a new one with more clear and effective wording? The reason I'm posting this here is because the TechDirt link will likely have tremendous impact, and I don't want that impact to go to waste.
I don't care who owns the petition, but decent content would most definitely enhance its impact.
