We’re not asking for money this time, just a petition that needs to be signed. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) started collecting signatures for a petition, trying to stop the RIAA from destroying lives.
A great initiative, if you support it, sign it. If the EFF reaches their target of 100.000 signatures they will deliver the petition to the Senate and House Commerce and Judiciary Commitees. Here’s a snippet from the petition:
We condemn the RIAA’s choice to force the family of a 12 year-old girl to forfeit $2,000 – money that could have gone to feed, clothe and educate this honor student. We stand with the retirees, parents, children and others who have been caught in the RIAA’s line of fire.
And if you have a little money left you might want to donate a dollar (or more) to Patti Santangelo. Patti is the New York working mother with five children who’s decided to fight the RIAA in court.
