Arguments against the SSSCA

Author: JT Smith

Speare writes, "As reported at NewsForge earlier, the US Senate Commerce Committee was scheduled to hold a hearing about the "Security Systems Standards and Certification Act," or SSSCA. With the anthrax debacle, it's uncertain whether this hearing is being held on schedule or not, but I wrote my representatives anyway. The result is an eight printed page open letter, which I've made available online at my site, 2001-10-22 Re: Content Control and the SSSCA. It hits upon the many strange and problematic issues I have with the SSSCA, from its scope, its civil issues, its business and technical flaws, and the motives and deals that appear to have created the bill."
