Tell British Parliament To Stop P2P Lawsuits

In response to the RIAA's irrational lawsuit campaign against the tens of millions of American P2P users, EFF set up a petition asking Congress to stop the madness and support ways for artists to get paid without fans getting sued. If you live in the UK, you should also check out this petition to the British Parliament and the local record industry trade group (BPI) to stop lawsuits against music fans and develop constructive alternatives that get artists paid. The petition was launched last month by record industry vet Chris Thomas, and the site's press release notes that the managers of The Streets and Avril Lavigne has signed it.
