Entry Title Date
Online Consent For Sharing Video Service Use December 6, 2011
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"None of the examples provided by Mr. Watt illustrated disagreement between the commenters he highlighted with the consumer empowerment measures that H.R. 2471 provides. H.R. 2471 simply gives consumers the freedom to share what they’ve watched with their friends if they would like to. It grants consumers the same right to share movies and television shows that they’ve enjoyed, as is already possible for music, news, and books. He correctly notes that someone can right now go on Facebook or some other social media and say, I watched this movie or that television show, and I like it or don’t like it. The difference, however, is that consumers do not understand why they can have an arrangement for the music they listen to to immediately go up online so that their friends can listen to the same music simultaneously, but with regard to movies they have to take additional steps that can, under circumstances, be inconvenient to them. That’s why they like this convenience, and that’s why consumers should have it. And that’s why this bill empowers consumers in ways that they are not empowered today, and why it is a real consumer bill."

"Mr. Speaker, at this point I would like to yield to the gentleman from North Carolina, who is also a cosponsor of this legislation, and earlier the lead sponsor until that position was assumed by Mr. Watt, the distinguished gentleman from North Carolina (Mr. Price) for 5 minutes."

"Amendment Offered by Mr. Boren to the Amendment Offered by Mr. Watt"
Implementing The 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act Of 2007 January 9, 2007
F. Sensenbrenner, R-WI
"During a Judiciary Committee markup of H.R. 10 in September 2004, I offered an amendment to establish a Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board to provide advice and counsel on policy development and implementation as it pertains to privacy and civil liberties implications of executive branch actions, proposed legislation, regulations, and policies related to efforts to protect the Nation from terrorism. My amendment was a complete substitute for an amendment offered by Mr. Watt that would have provided for a similar board with broad administrative subpoena power and provided nearly unlimited authority to analyze all aspects of the Nation’s war on terrorism."
