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.

COMMON SENSE FROM FORMER CONGRESSMAN ALLAN SWIFT
Testifying as a private citizen making mix tapes for over 50 years. "When I buy a CD or a DVD, that content should be wholly mine to do with as I please as long as I am in no way selling its contents or profiting from it. ... Present law is predicated on the assumption that consumers will rip-off copyright holders. The vast majority are innocent of that assumption, but all are treated as guilty."
