Just because the Motion Picture Association of America commits fraud...

…doesn't mean rightfully-concerned Demand Progress petition signatories do:

The Motion Picture Association of America is trying to quell the momentum of our 350,000-signature campaign against the Internet Blacklist Bill (a.k.a. the PROTECT IP Act). The MPAA themselves entered two made-up names on our online petition and are therefore claiming that the thousands of other voices who have spoken out against this extreme legislation don’t belong to real, concerned citizens.

Well, it's time to prove them wrong. We have a new system in place that makes it easy for you to email House and Senate offices directly. (This is different from signing the petition against the bill, and we urge you to take this action even if you've signed the petition.)

Will you email Congress to urge them to oppose the PROTECT IP Act? Just click here.

PROTECT IP would give the government the power to force Internet service providers, search engines, and other “information location tools” to block users' access to sites that have been accused of copyright infringement — the initiation of a China-style censorship regime here in the United States.

Hold your Congressmen accountable for the protection of your freedoms — click here to urge them to oppose the PROTECT IP Act.


Thanks for fighting for Internet freedom.
