Well, this sounds fair:
Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee gave the green light to S. 3325, "The Enforcement of Intellectual Property Act of 2008." Among other things, this intellectual property enforcement bill lets the DOJ enforce civil copyright claims and lets the government do the MPAA and RIAA’s intellectual property rights enforcement work for them—at tax payers’ expense.
We’ve setup Cause Caller to help you talk to Senators that we believe would be receptive to the message, but you should call your Senators, too.
The bill is already out of committee and could get sign-off from Senators for streamlined passage as soon as today, so we need you to call in now!
The bill is opposed by (at least) the following:
American Association of Law Libraries
American Library Association
Consumer Federation of America
Digital Future Coalition
Electronic Frontier Foundation
Knowledge Ecology International
Medical Library Association
Special Libraries Association
Click the first link to contact your Senator and ask if they’ll fund and pursue your personal civil litigation, too, in lieu of catching and convicting child predators, terrorists, gangsters, and pension fund embezzlers. Don’t forget to ask the same for me, too.
Or just ask they call the whole thing off.
