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 corporate interests pushing this bill through Congress include the Copyright Alliance, The Motion Picture Association of America, and The Recording Industry Association of America.
