For months, AALL has expressed opposition to two overreaching bills that aim to address the real issue of international intellectual property infringement, piracy and counterfeiting on the Internet – the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act (PROTECT IP Act, or PIPA), S.968, and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), H.R. 3261. AALL strongly believes that these bills threaten free speech, free expression and the freedom of the Internet.
Now, we need your help. On Tuesday, January 24, the Senate is scheduled to hold a cloture vote on S. 968. AALL needs you to write to your Senators and tell them to vote NO on PIPA.
We’ve provided you with a draft message that you can edit, and it only takes a few minutes to take action. Please join us in telling your Senators that while online infringement may be a problem, PIPA is not the answer.
