URGENT: Our Fight is On and We Need Your Help with CASE Act Advocacy Today!

By July 10, 2019 July 17th, 2019 Advocacy, Small Claims Report

Don’t let theft of your work continue to be the norm.

We need your help to fight back NOW against the opposition being mounted publicly to derail the forward movement of the CASE Act through Congress.  Today, groups who don’t believe in copyright and the right of creators to profit fairly from their work have raised the same tired arguments about how the CASE Act will somehow stifle innovation and prevent free expression on the Internet if enacted into law.

These groups are aware that the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a markup hearing on the bill next Thursday, July 18, and they want to do everything they can to enlist the aid of some Senators to block the bill’s forward movement. We need to make our voices heard with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee by Wednesday, July 17.

These same groups hate the idea of copyright and intellectual property protection, in part because it might mean that creators finally have a remedy to go with the right to intellectual property protection enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

Contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee now.

You CAN change the balance of power in this fight by taking action today, and sending a tweet or email to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee urging co-sponsorship and full-throated support for the CASE Act bill, S.1273.  We need you to contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell those Senators on the Committee who have not yet joined as co-sponsors that you expect their support and positive action on the bill.

To date, ASMP advocates have sent 7,531 emails and tweets to the co-sponsors and non-sponsors.

NOTE: While YOUR Senators may not be members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, you can still send emails and tweets to members of the SJC as the SJC represents ALL Americans, not just their constituents, when deciding which bills to pass out of committee to the full Senate for a vote.

It only takes 30 seconds for you to make your voice heard using our Phone2Action tool and if you’ve already done it, thank you, and please act again.  With ONE CLICK, thank you messages will go to the 7 current CASE Act sponsors, and messages urging sponsorship of the CASE Act will go to the 14 non-sponsors on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

We can win this fight in the Senate, BUT ONLY IF YOU WEIGH IN AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD BY MONDAY JULY 15.

Thank you for your support.
