The EFF makes it easy for users to speak out on HR 1201

Consumers have been coming under fire in regards to copyright issues thanks to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). That may change if a new bill that Congress is considering becomes law.

The Digital Media Consumers' Rights Act (DMCRA, HR 1201) would give consumers more freedom in copying CD and DVD media for their own legal use:

HR 1201 would give citizens the right to circumvent copy-protection measures as long as what they're doing is otherwise legal. For example, it would make sure that when you buy a CD, whether it is copy-protected or not, you can record it onto your computer and move the songs to an MP3 player. It would also protect a computer science professor who needs to bypass copy-protection to evaluate encryption technology.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has a form for you to fill out with your personal information after which a pre-formatted email will be sent to your congressman. You can edit the subject and text of the email if you wish, but the EFF pretty much has all of the bases covered.
