SOPA IS BACK. I REPEAT THIS IS NOT JOKE. 

SOPA is not back. Please check the EFF action page before posting/reblogging stuff like this — spamming people when it’s not true makes it harder to spread the word when something really serious DOES happen and we really need to muster collective action. 

What WOULD be useful right now (this is March 2014 as I write this) would be going to the EFF action page and asking your reps in Congress to vote against renewal of the Trade Promotion Authority, which could cause bad provisions that the Administration writes into trade agreements to become law without Congressional oversight.

European fans!  From what I can tell, this is a serious opportunity to weigh in and argue for a right to make transformative, noncommercial works.  Apparently sometimes sheer numbers do matter.  Questions 40-44 deal with “user-generated content,” including fanworks, and you don’t have to answer other questions—you can just answer those.

Further from Techdirt: “Navigating this can be daunting, so a broad coalition has put together a site called youcan.fixcopyright.eu. It is designed to offer a quick way of selecting groups of questions that are most likely to be of interest to specific kinds of respondents — for example, online users, teachers, parents, bloggers, etc.”

Just writing about why we should have the right to make transformative works could have real effects.  Please consider giving it a moment of your time!

Reblogging for great justice! :) EU fans, please give it a look!
