Senate Bills

THERE’S SOME TALK that the RIAA and possibly the movie industry are trying to quickly push through legislation in the US Senate that would, among other things, use the Department of Justice to investigate and criminally prosecute filesharing. What a totally ridiculous idea. The only way the bill will actually pass is if there’s never a hearing or any debate on the floor, and that’s exactly what seems to be happening. The legislation left committee with no debate and could be passed as early as tonight with a voice vote in the Senate. But just one Senator could put a hold on the bill and demand some real debate. So, if you have a moment, please drop a line to your Senator and tell them you care about Senate bill S.2237. Find your Senator’s contact info here.
