"Take a Stand Against the Madness; Stop the RIAA!
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is on a rampage, launching legal attacks against average Americans from coast to coast. After over 18,000 lawsuits and counting against P2P users, file sharing has continued to increase rapidly. Meanwhile, music fans, like 12 year-old Brianna LaHara, college student Cassi Hunt, and parent of five Cecilia Gonzalez, are being forced to pay thousands of dollars they do not have to settle RIAA-member lawsuits, and many other innocent individuals are being caught in the crossfire.
This irrational crusade is not generating a single penny for the artists that the RIAA claims to protect. The RIAA should be working to create a rational, legal means by which its customers can take advantage of file sharing technology and pay a fair price for the music they love. With artists increasingly turning against the lawsuits, momentum may be shifting in favor of a better way forward.
Copyright law shouldn't make criminals out of more than 60 million Americans — tell Congress that it's time to stop the madness!
We have over 80,000 signatures so far - this is amazing! If we can get 100,000 signatures, we will deliver the petition to the Senate and House Commerce and Judiciary Commitees."
Folks, I'd really like you to consider signing this petition (read the whole thing at the link indicated) 0 and consider this:
The R.I.A.A and the M.P.A.A are causing FEDERAL RESOURCES (time, money and manpower) to be used to line their own pockets - resources that could much BETTER be utilized fighting TERRORISM and REAL crime.
IOW, YOU'RE paying for this through your tax dollars.
If that doesn't appeal to you, then SIGN the PETITION! It's a start! Pete
