SAVEP2P A SUCCESS, BUT CONGRESS THROWS A BONE TO HOLLYWOOD
We thank everyone who sent a fax via SaveP2P.com. Our hard work paid off as the PIRATE and INDUCE Acts were sunk in this session of the U.S. Congress. But don't celebrate yet. Congress still managed to pay back their friends in Hollywood to the tune of $2 million US for an anti-piracy czar to help protect the now again profitable movie and music industries.
