Call The RIAA And Tell Them What You Think Of DRM

On June 23rd will provide the contact numbers for the RIAA and similar organizations around the world.

From their site: "On Friday, June 23rd, we will coordinate a day of action, and this time it doesn't involve yellow hazmat suits. You don't even have to leave your desk. We will provide contact numbers for executives at the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and similar organizations around the world. We're asking you to proclaim your support for digital freedoms by calling the RIAA and telling them what you think of DRM and what you think of them!

More information about the RIAA:
The Recording Industry Association of America represents the major recording labels, and their influence plays a leading role in pushing DRM into our technology.

More information about DRM:

However, since its purpose is to restrict you the user, it is more accurate to describe DRM as Digital Restrictions Management. DRM Technology can restricts users’ access to movies, music, literature and software, indeed all forms of digital data. Unfree software implementing DRM technology is simply a prison in which users can be put to deprive them of the rights that the law would otherwise allow them. Read more about DRM and our campaign "
