Thursday, March sst 2012 to Saturday 31st March 2012
With the continuing campaigns for litigation such as SOFA and PIPA, and
the closure of sites such as Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time
has come to take a stand against music, film and media companies' lobbyists.
The only way is to hit them where it truly hurts.
Their profit margins.
March 2012 is the end of the sst quarter in economic reports worldwide.
Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see
a single film in cinemas, or download a copy, Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a
videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine.
Wait the 4 weeks to buy them in April: see the film later, etc. Holding out for just at weeks,
maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media and entertainment companies' profits tor the sst
quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments worldwide as stocks
and shares will blip from a large enough less of incomes.
This action can give a statement of intent:
We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying
for legislation which will censor the internet."
