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. )
