Subject: [ORG-action] MANDELSON'S DISCONNECTION PLANS: SIGN THE PETITION AND COME TO OUR EVENT

The freedom for each and everyone of us to express our views on the internet is under threat like never before. Many people may be prevented from using an essential service we all rely on: the internet.

The UK government is considering laws that would allow individuals to be cut off from the internet for alleged copyright infringement. They say the reason is to protect the economic prosperity of the creative
industries, but online revenues are up, and infringement is decreasing.

If Lord Mandelson's plan becomes law, disconnection may start for copyright infringement and then be extended to other activities. It's disproportionate, and won't work, and we need to stop it before it becomes law.

Musicians are against these plans, the public disagrees with them, but Mandelson needs to hear from you now.

=== ACT NOW ===

1. Sign the 38 Degrees petition, and let everyone know about it by sending them this link:

http://www.openrightsgroup.org/disconnection

2. Come to our campaign event http://stopmandelson.eventbrite.com/

David Rowntree (Blur), Gerd Leonhard (author, The Future of Music) and Ben Goldacre (Bad Science) will be speaking
