Yes, it turns out the DMCA is essential to the future, but doesn\'t threaten free speech. . The full text of Mrs. Schroeder\'s remarks can be found here, she has some interesting thoughts on fair use.
As for the threats to your freedom of speech? They include libel, invasion of privacy, confidentiality of sources and the limits of First Amendment protection.
Funny how different my ideas for freedom of speech are from corporate ideas.
