|KeepInformationFree is a global political activist organization dedicated to preserving the individual's right to freedom of information. Many American corporate organizations, including but not limited to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), have been pushing for increased copyright protection of corporate entities at the expense of the individual consumer and freedom of information. We are asking that government entities and corporations charged with providing information to the People of the United States focus on defending the individual's basic human right to freedom of information, against corporations that are pressing for unjust control.|
If you believe in the importance of the basic human right to freedom of information, please take the time to sign our petition: [link]
KeepInformationFree is a global network. We welcome your feedback!

Actions You Can Take:
1. Invite as many people as you can to #KeepInformationFree!
2. Post a message about the importance of our mission in your deviantART journal, on your Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, and anywhere else you can think of. Encourage others to support freedom of information. For convenience, I have prepared a pre-written message which you can simply copy and paste:
Freedom of information is vital for the progress of a civilized society! Unfortunately, corporations like the Recording Industry Association of America and the Motion Picture Association of America want to take it away... That's why KeepInformationFree is asking the government administration and companies that largely influence the flow of information to protect our rights. Please sign this petition to preserve freedom of information: [link]
Re-post this so as many people know as possible. Blog it, tweet it, email it around. Let's preserve Freedom of Information while we still can!
Please Note: You will need to correct the links when copy and pasting. Otherwise it will say 'link' without actually being a link.
3. Comment on the profiles of members belonging to anti-SOPA-and-PIPA groups here on deviantART. Let people know that corporations are at it again, making money by withholding information that we need to know.. and that we are here to stand in their way. Once again, I've prepared a pre-written comment that can be copy and pasted for convenience:

Here is a quick list of groups whose members will support freedom of information:
#Protest-against-SOPA #Protest-Against-ACTA #OCCUPYart #Reboot-Freedom #VivaLaInternet #Stop-SOPA-Group #DeviantsAgainstSOPA #ANTI-SOPA-GROUP #STUFF-SOPA #downwithSOPA #Mind-ur-Own-Business #Stop-SOPA #AntiSOPAandPIPA #GROUP-AGAINST-ACTA
4. Call or write letters to Internet Service Providers and ask them not to participate in the RIAA's "Six Strikes Agreement." Explain to them that what they're doing will only make more money for greedy corporations, while doing nothing to protect the rights of the independent worker who created the copyrighted material.
Pre-written letter for Internet Service Providers can be found HERE: [link]

5. E-mail and/or send snail mail letters to any celebrities and major persons involved in political activism, human rights, or anything to do with innovation and technology. For example: Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from "Mythbusters", Joe and John DiPrima from "ArcAttack", Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Tim Cook, Sean Penn, Ben Affleck, Rush Limbaugh, and many others. If you need help finding the contact information of a particular celebrity, send a Note to *Steamstrike with the celebrity's name.

6. If you are a U.S. citizen: E-mail, fax, send snail mail to, and call the Senators for your state. You can also contact presidential candidates and former politicians.

7. Pay for advertisements advocating freedom of information and briefly stating what Internet Service Providers plan to do to take it away. Try to get a group of friends and supporters together and pool money to fund the advertisements.
8. Distribute physical media and coordinate demonstrations. Make posters and fliers advocating freedom of information and get permission to display them in local businesses. Make a banner saying "KEEP INFORMATION FREE" and get two or three friends to stand on a public sidewalk and display it with you.
If you need more information on public demonstrations, contact *Steamstrike.
