Don't Let the RIAA Put the Net at Risk!
Tell the FTC that the Internet is Peer to Peer, It is Ours, and We Intend to Keep It!
Please forward this notice to any other concerned parties you may know.
Please tell the FTC not to allow a few rich cartels and monopolies such as the RIAA, MPAA and Microsoft to put the Internet at risk:
What's Going On:
An RIAA-sponsored CapAnalysis paper submitted to the FTC, calls for an investigation of "P2P Filesharing" applications for deceptive practices that affect the privacy and security of users, subjecting them to such risks as adware, viruses, exposure to undesirable material, impairments of computer function, and last but not least, liability to charges of copyright infringement. Congress is also calling the FTC to investigate these products.
We call all those who know the Internet is a common good, who make productive use of it and who develop applications for it as a regular part of their daily lives, to join us in telling the FTC what the real sources of these risks are.
