Good news for bloggers
The Federal Election Committee has released their proposed regulations for use of the internet during campaigns. It could have been better, but it could have been MUCH worse.
If the regulations are approved by the FEC at its meeting on Monday, they will represent a substantial change from a far more aggressive version of the regulations seen by CNET News.com last year. An outcry from bloggers and even members of Congress appears to have caused FEC lawyers--who are under court order to regulate the Internet--to rethink the rules and adopt a more laissez-faire approach.Posted by jackhodgson at March 25, 2006 08:59 AM
