[QUOTE][B]GVK: What are some of the biggest victories of the last year?[/B]

[B][COLOR=Red]HH:[/COLOR][/B] We have had many, but some of the less public (but no less important) were
being invited to have a seat at the table. In several national coalitions
the ECA is one of very few (or the only) consumer group present. That
consumers are present in discussions involving matters of such importance is
fantastic, but that we were invited speaks volumes.

One example might be that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) held a workshop last spring to
discuss Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies. Participating were
some of the country¹s leading minds from trade associations representing
developers, publishers, retailers, intellectual property attorneys * from
all corners of digital products: music, movies, productivity software,
streaming technologies and gaming.

The sole consumer advocacy organization
to speak was the ECA. That alone is great, right?! But by having that
opportunity, we presented a centrist perspective and suggested that *
perhaps * we can all come together to agree on the fact that End User
License Agreements (EULAs) are unwieldy, complex and generally over-reaching
documents that need to be standardized. And secondly, that if DRM is present
in a packaged goods product, it needs to be disclosed to the customer prior
to purchase * not after, when they won¹t be able to return the product. [/QUOTE]
