Comments: Fair Use, and The Limits Of Contract

"Now, I can say that a contract to take away one's fair use and reverse-engineering rights should not be permitted, as against public policy."

I agree. How can we make public policy reflect our opinion? Certainly, blogging is a good way to hone argements and develop a strategy. But, what should the strategy be? Can it be carried out by one (Seth) person?

Maybe we (Seth and his readers and their friends and their readers) can write to our state (are they relevant?) and federal representatives. This is unlikely to be noticed now in the election season, but if we wait a few months for things to settle down, maybe it will be noticed. What should we say to them?
