[vox] FWD: [alerts@action.eff.org: Sign our Petition to Stop the RIAA Lawsuits!]

Many of you may already be signed up for EFF's Effector List, but if
not, I feel it is my duty to pass this on to everyone in vox-land.

All they need is 10,000 signatures.

Dear EFF Supporter:

This is astounding - in the first 24 hours, over 6,000 people have signed 
our petition to stop the Recording Industry Association of America's (RIAA) 
nationwide rampage against average Americans.  Rather than 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, it 
has chosen to sue people like Brianna LaHara, a 12 year-old girl living in 
New York City public housing.  Take a stand against the RIAA's tactics by 
signing our petition:


Brianna, and hundreds of other music fans like her, are being forced to pay 
thousands of dollars they do not have to settle RIAA-member lawsuits -- 
supporting a business model that is anything but rational. This crusade is 
generating thousands of subpoenas and hundreds of lawsuits, but not a 
single penny for the artists that the RIAA claims to protect. 

Copyright law shouldn't make criminals out of 60 million Americans, and 
it's time for a change.  Congress is going to hold hearings; we need your 
help to make sure that the public's voice is heard.  Tell Congress that 
it's time to stop the madness:


We'll deliver the petition to Congress once we've hit 10,000 signatures. 
This is a grassroots campaign - please take the time to tell your friends 
and family about this issue. Thanks for support!
