I'm trying to do a GOOD thing here. 9:57 PM
Our Civil rights are at stake. If we let them get away with taking just one of them, what's to stop them from taking away the rest?

This concerns everybody, or at least it should. Our Government slips Laws and Statutes in behind our backs all of the time. Here we have a chance to actually do something about it, sign a Petition to save this Right!

The way our Rights keep getting taken away from us without a voice, without a chance, that's evil.

Why would you personally want to give up one of our Rights? Why not help me fight for this?

If this Right isn't important to you, what Right are you going to get taken away from you that no one will concern themselves with?

It could happen, and as far as I can see with this Administration, it could be sooner than you think!

     Help me to get rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations on Copyrights!

Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene

Sorry, I forgot to add in the link.
We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:
Copyright - Get Rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations
Target: Congress
Our 'Protected Rights' are supposed to be for 70 years after our death, they have drastically reduced this to a mere 3 years, and that's only if we catch someone stealing our writings, art, etc..., in time to file a Lawsuit.

The STATUTE of LIMITATIONS has no place in our society as it promotes Infringement, and proves that our Laws don't work for US.

Please help to restore our Copyright Protections to, 
"70 years past Death, not 3 years past theft"

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Remember to add your home address, as it may be required to get this through Congress.

(You have my Permission to copy the heading from 'We the undersigned, etc...' to the end of the url of this Petition and to distribute it in an effort to obtain signatures to change this Law. )

I appreciate all of the support I'm getting, but we still need signatures. This is really Important, it needs to be taken seriously. It was brought to my attention by a very astute poster to one of my threads that we need only to remember the Artists of the 60's, 70's, etc... getting ripped off. If I could only figure out how to contact them I know we'd get this passed!
They probably ran out of the time it takes to collect evidence? I don't know, there's no time to research nowadays.
Three years simply gives the perpetrator too much time to destroy evidence though. My paper shredder works fast and it's an old 'over the trash can' type.
People should look at all of the possible ways that these Infringers use to protect their stolen wares, maybe then they'll understand the importance of this ISSUE.
What I keep hearing is that writers,artists,musicians, etc... don't believe that it happens at all. All they need to do is look around them on the net.

There are Lawsuits going on with big Company interests at stake, nothing for the aspiring artists who've been ripped off.
Who knows maybe they don't think that their work is good enough to get stolen, or they think they'd feel flattered if it did.
It's not that way in the real world. It can be real damaging to your soul, especially when you can't get Attorneys to listen. They're supposed to help. Right?
I appreciate all the support that you've been giving me. I only wish that people realized that it only takes a few seconds to help change this Law to our favor, and it hurts nothing and nobody to sign it.
I've tried to stress to everybody that Infringers get fined. I've never heard of anyone doing jail time, that was one of the concerns that I had heard of.
No one seems to believe that it can happen to them, I didn't believe it either. We live and we learn!
Please help to restore our Copyright Protections.
Thank you for your time and consideration, Darlene

Hi,   I saw the Pombo Petition so I tried to research the guy.
Not good, I didn't really get the chance. When I clicked on one of the links from the search bar I ended up with an HTTP://??intercept. What is that about?
Then I also noticed something called 'Orbitz', does anyone know what this is?
I then lost my Internet connection so I ran Ad-aware and it found 2 IE Tracking cookies of the Critical kind.
Be careful what you click on, you might get more than you bargain for.
Have a great evening. Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene
P.S. Can you see the size of this font? When I got back on the net, everything was huge..!
How do I change this?
