If you love wasting time on the internet with memes, you ought to be concerned about a new law that’s going through Congress. The “Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2019” would go after people who post memes with copyrighted material a fine of up to $30,000. So, lawyers are going to create copyrighted memes and bait unwitting people share them...BAM! Sued for $30k! The scumbags in Congress and their greedy lawyer pals are essentially gouging the public. While the bill hasn't been passed yet, the clock is ticking.

What can you do? There’s a petition that’s started up to protest this ridiuclous bill. Help save the internet from blood-thirsty lawyers and greedy politicians. Here's the petition link: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/that-meme-you-shared-it-may-soon-cost-you-5000?source=direct_link&
