If you don't want your taxes to pay for the Dept. of Justice to collect money for the RIAA and the MPAA, then read the link below and act now. 

The court's aren't rolling over for these guys, so they're trying to get the politicians to and our rights are getting trampled in the process!

And I thought that awful bill had died the death it so rightly deserves.  Thanks for the link.  I am definitely going to use the automated letter for my state senators, but also follow it up with a snail mail version.

Good gravy man! Is nothing sacred to the RIAA and MPAA... besides the "billions" allegedly lost due to illegal downloading? Automated letter sent to my Senators. Hopefully this nasty little bill gets squashed in the very near future.

Automated fax sent...

You know, sometimes, I think "for all the good it will do."  But, for the record, I HAVE seen these grassroots kinds of campaigns work.

SO PLEASE, if you oppose this bill, SEND THE LETTER.  It WILL help!!

Any chief executive would oppose this law. 

Even if the DOJ is granted this power, there's no way any Attorney General would pull agents off of investigating kiddie porn rings to go look for copyright violations.  That's why the bill doesn't frighten me.

It looks like a sop legislators are giving the RIAA to try to keep them happy because they knew they couldn't pass the legislation the lobbyists really wanted.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
