First, I seriously doubt this will "replay the DMCA's shortcomings". It may incorporate shortcomings of its own (who's got the crystal ball?), but replay the old ones? No, probably not.

Unless.......

(Second) That "year of refinement" is much more likely to be a year of watering down and teeth pulling. In which case we could see a replay. That's why we need to make our representatives aware of the need to ADOPT THE BILL AS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN, no compromises, no fixes, no "making it more fair" to the people it's aimed against.
