Many folks are concerned that the overly broad wording will force manufacturers to just lock out DD-WRT and other open-source programs and be done with it. Others believe that with recent net-neutrality decisions, the FCC won’t take any draconian actions. If you’ve got concerns, why not express them on the EFF‘s petition, where they’ll be “viewable online one day after being submitted to the FCC public docket?” As the FCC itself put it, “this is, of course, why the FCC does notices of proposed rulemaking and seeks comment from the parties and affected stakeholders.” – Steve Dent, Engadget
