Measuring whether weblogs matter

The grass-roots effort to support the Public Domain Enhancement Act will be a good test of whether weblogs have any political clout.

The petition's already being linked all over the place -- more than 80 in 16 hours -- and has yet to be noticed by the mainstream media.

Within a month or two, it will be interesting to see if the drafted law has found a sponsor in Congress (they lost one in April) and showed up on the mainstream media's radar.
