CNet/Declan McCullagh: “WASHINGTON–A proposal to let copyright owners hack into and disrupt peer-to-peer networks will be revised, a congressional aide said Wednesday. “
Alec French, an aide to bill author Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., defended his boss’ ideas but acknowledged that some critics had made reasonable points about the controversial proposal.
“He plans to significantly redraft the bill to accommodate reasonable concerns before reintroduction in the 108th (Congress),” French said during an afternoon event at the conservative Heritage Foundation.
Ahh, Mr. French’s first name is Alec.
