The problem with our fight against the RIAA is that while we know lots about it and you, our attractive readers, know lots about it, regular folks who aren't as tech-savvy don't really understand what the big deal is. The biggest goal of our boycott, besides keeping money out of the bank accounts of the RIAA, is spreading the word on this topic, and for that we need your help.

One of the best things you can do is write a letter to the editor of your local paper letting them know about this issue and why it's important to you. It's a big issue, so choose one or two aspects that you know the most about and feel the most strongly about and focus on those (if you need a refresher on the facts, check our manifesto out). Be rational and keep from going over the top or being too emotional — you want to educate people, not bludgeon them with your opinions.

So whether your local paper is the Concord Monitor or the New York Times, sit down, get your thoughts together, and help spread the word.
