    European Union is about to vote for a bill entitled "European Union Directive for the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights", which would ultimately create a intellectual property legislation that makes American DMCA look like a schoolboy.

    The legislation would allow copyright owners, such as record labels, to raid P2P users' homes if they suspect the user for sharing copyrighted material via P2P networks. It would also allow copyright owners to seize users' assets and get their bank accounts frozen whether they had any financial -- or any other -- gain from file sharing or not.

    EFF and various European liberty organizations have launched campaigns against the proposed directive. We urge all of our users, specially European users, to submit your thoughts to your MEPs immediately, before the 8th of March when the directive goes to European Parliament's review.

    Use this page to contact EU Parliament members with a pre-written message from EFF

    More information:

    EFF.org
    ABCNews.com


    This affects ALL of us.
    Please, please take it very seriously. They are.
