Combating Online Infringement

Normally I don't post twice in one day but I just got a notice for this on a few of my loops. This is important for artists of any kind everywhere. If you support artists and writers and musicians being *gasp* paid for their work, then support this bill. Internet pirates of ebooks and music seem to think that intellectual property should be free for them because....well, they don't give any viable reasons other than they're greedy asshats with entitlement issues.


So, if you support writers like myself and not cowardly thieves, check out this article with Washington Watch and vote yes.

Yay Katie! So true! But, even more important than voting here, is to write comments to say why you think copyrights should be protected as they are gathering comments here:

Shiloh Walker had a post on this that is where I learned about this.
