Act venue

Fight Patent Trolls: Support the VENUE Act of 2016

For years, patent trolls have exploited a rule that lets them file disputes in any court in the U.S. Cases should be litigated in courts that have a meaningful connection to the dispute, not where one party thinks it can get an advantage. The VENUE Act would make the process of determining venue more fair for both sides.

Tell the Senate: stop letting trolls abuse this loophole. Pass the VENUE Act.

O Brasil Construiu Uma Das Melhores Leis Para Internet Do Mundo. Impeça o Congresso de Aprovar a Pior

O Marco Civil da Internet é a carta de direitos para a era digital construída com participação ampla e intensa da população. Após pouco mais de um ano de sua entrada em vigor, e antes mesmo de sua regulamentação, alguns políticos estão planejando sua destruição. Um novo projeto de lei, o PL215/2015, permite aos que estão no poder censurar a Internet e exige que os internautas brasileiros entreguem seus dados pessoais ao acessar qualquer aplicativo de celular ou site. Caso requisitados, todos esses dados poderão ser disponibilizados para as autoridades mesmo SEM ordem judicial. Diga ao Congresso para votar Não.
