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

corporate interests pushing this bill through Congress are the same ones
that created the SOPA/PIPA.
