CNET News.com reports: "Critics of the proposed legislation, known as the Internet Freedom and Broadband Deployment
Act, or H.R. 1542, are scheduled to hold what they are calling the Internet Freedom Rally on
Sunday afternoon on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol Building. They say that the measure
would, among other things, allow local phone companies to enter the long-distance
data-services market without opening their local networks to rivals."
