Free Speech Protection Act of 2008

Statement in Support of the Free Speech Protection Act of 2008 (S. 2977)

Philbin is not the only one to attempt to prosecute an American author through English courts.

When you read this article and investigate further, you will be appalled at the miscarriage of justice shoved down the throats of American authors in foriegn courts. These have often happened in countries where the books have not even been made available.

It is possible for Philbin to take me to court and get damages even if I cannot afford to go to England to defend myself.

Write your congressman and senators to get this bill passed.

    Philbin’s a douche, but I doubt he has the guts to follow through with something like that.

    And he has nothing really to gain by it. I was rather appalled when I read the background on that act and what has brought it about. I hope it passes.

    Not sure it would work the same way for a comment made online, a review on a book. But even if it did, he would get little and any fame would be desrision.
    We don’t like cry babies over here.

    Pretty shameful law on our part though.
