The Senate will hold a vote on the ‘Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act,’ (CASE Act) which is a dangerous new bill that would slap a $15,000 fine on sharing a meme you didn’t make or downloading a photo from social media. The he CASE Act would create a separate, industry-friendly system for copyright claims to $30,000, with no option of appeal. Critics say trolls will buy up copyrights with the sole intent of sending out mass threats and lawsuits to harvest settlements. The corporate interests pushing this bill through Congress include the Copyright Alliance, The Motion Picture Association of America, and The Recording Industry Association of America.
Have you ever shared a meme that you didn’t make? Or downloaded a
photo you saw on social media? If Congress has its way, you could soon
get slapped with a $15,000 fine
by copyright trolls––with no chance of appeal––just for doing normal
stuff on the Internet. These trolls buy up copyrights with the sole intent
of sending out mass threats and lawsuits to harvest settlements. Now, a
dangerous new bill called the Copyright Alternative in Small Claims
Enforcement (CASE) Act is sailing through Congress to make it easier for
everyone from trolls to Hollywood producers to sue you. And it just
slipped through a Senate Committee, clearing the way for a full Senate
In recent years, federal courts have made it easier for
regular people to defend themselves from frivolous lawsuits by trolls.
But the CASE Act would create a separate, industry-friendly system
for copyright claims to $30,000, with no option of appeal. The
corporate interests pushing this bill through Congress are the same ones
that created the SOPA/PIPA.

Critics are concerned that the laws may serve the hidden purpose of justifying even more selective censorship of politically-unpopular content in the name of protecting copyrights. Article 11 of the law calls for a “link tax”. Article 13 threatens memes because the source material is often copyrighted.
Tens of billions of dollars are earmarked for war, weapons and regime change abroad.
