Call To Action To Independent Labels, Creators & Service Providers Who Rely Upon Music Having Value:
For years we have called on government to help fight Piracy including those websites that promote the devaluation of music and disregard the rights of creators by leaking music early and without permission. Both the Obama Administration and the Congress have started to provide creators much needed support in recent months. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency has taken aggressive action against infringing websites, recently seizing the domain names of 82 sites. Since then ICE, and its Director John Morton, have been taking heat in the blogosphere and in some print media for their actions. It is imperative that the music community let the Administration know just how vital ICE’s actions are, and how much we appreciate them.
We need to show them some love for their action! PLEASE send a note to John Morton thanking him for what he’s doing.
This letter, which also highlights a recent A2IM press statement, was sent to the Obama administration by A2IM today. They need to hear from our members across the country now!
Use the A2IM letter as a guide, but please personalize your letter, and write to:
Mr. John T. Morton
Director, United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement
