The assault on MySpace is gaining traction. ABC News just covered the new policy at Libertyville High School in Illinois that would penalize students for content they’ve posted on their MySpace page. At the same time a bill in Congress called the Deleting Online Predators Act is increasingly getting attention.
Those of us who care about youth rights and freedom of speech aren’t sitting on our hands however. We are mobilizing to fight back. A longtime ally of NYRA, Mobilizing America’s Youth has joined the fray and is actively opposing HR 5319 with a great site full of many resources for writing letters to your congressmen opposing the bill and getting the word out. Check out their site here and make use of some of their tools to oppose HR 5319.
Another good place to check out is a wiki with more information on the bill and how to fight it.
