Who wants to update the copyright laws?Submitted by BenAcel on Tue, 03/01/2011 - 17:19
A lot of good, hard working, and innocent people including disabled are being sued by Righthaven because of loopholes in Fair Use exemptions under Copyright law. I just contacted my districts senators and congresspeople to spearhead copyright law to update fair use exemptions to cover Internet postings, Youtube videos (and other streaming sites), and Internet related matters.
That way Wronghaven can no longer be in the business of suing people over postings or images from the Las Vegas Review Journal, Denver Post, or any other newspaper.
Fair Use must be updated to cover Internet postings, and other kinds of online activities to prevent poor and disabled bloggers from being sued for copyright infringement ever again.
You can do this to when you contact your districts congresspeople or senators including Ron Paul tell him or her this:
When their office picks up your phone call tell them that you like them to spearhead the copyright law.
Then when they want you to state an example of why the Fair Use Exemptions need to be updated then tell them about Righthaven and them suing disabled bloggers (Brian Hill of USWGO and another disabled blogger being sued), college students with little money, and poor folks that cannot afford legal representation.
If they ask you what they think needs updating tell them:
I like for Fair Use Exemptions to cover Internet postings, Streaming video/audio, online petitions, and anything transmitted over the Internet to have legal protections of Fair Use if used for educational and political purposes thus protected under the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
So who is with me to reform copyright law and update Fair Use to cover Internet postings?
