Orphan Works Oppostion, WHY we need your help NOW

From Joanne Fink – coordinator for OWOH.org

Hi Everyone,

Bad news… Conyers, Berman and the House leadership are in active discussions to pass the House bill NOW. We had a scare earlier tonight when we thought that the bill would be put on the suspension calendar this evening (which means it would be voted on), but now it looks as though it will be tomorrow morning unless we can do something to prevent it!

After consulting with Brad Holland, Cynthia Turner and the other team leaders, here’s the strategy:

We need to get to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and
ask them NOT to allow H.R. 5889 to go on the calendar.

We also need to get to 4 critical members of the House Judiciary Committee and tell them NOT to
abandon their version of the bill and accept the Senate version.

This is SO important that we are asking everyone to phone, fax AND e-mail these six people
IMMEDIATELY. Perhaps if they all get 10,000+ messages in the next 24 hours it will have an impact.

Here is the contact information, followed by sample letters that you may use as is, or edit as you see fit. Please be aware that some of the representatives only accept e-mails from constituents.

If you have trouble getting through on their individual lines, you can also CALL CONGRESS:
1-800-828-0498. Tell the U.S. Capitol Switchboard

Operator “I would like to leave a message for Congressperson __________ that I oppose the
Orphan Works Act.” They will switch you through to the lawmaker’s office and often take a message
which also gets passed on to the lawmaker. Once you’re put through give the same message.

Best

Joanne
