Last week of the boycott.

3-week boycott of the media-industry, last week.

Three week Global media-boycott / 3 veckors global köpbojkott mot media-industrin  / drei vochen medien boycottieren / trois semaines de boycott des médias / três semanas de mídia boicote / tres semanas de boicot a los medios de comunicación

A thing that started as an idea friday jan 30 is now in the works, 2 out of 3 weeks has went by and over 70 bloggers and 1500+ has joined the facebook-event.
Just 3-4 years ago, a boycott took months to plan and years to implement.
Now its just a matter of weeks, and in this case only a matter of days.

I'm proud of what we all have managed to accomplice this far, but its still a long way to go.

As stated by the founder Michael Gajditza - Svensk Myndighetskontroll.

"It's about time we consumers show these Hollywood clowns and their attorneys what consumer power is all about.

The way I see it, we have a chance to send a powerful message to the industry if all file sharers can agree to not buy any records, films or games for three weeks.
(This event is for all to join, not just file-sharers /my comment)

There would be two effects.
First, a reduction in sales, but above all, it would send a message to the industry that we file sharers actually do buy the stuff we download to test out or sample prior to purchase.

The problem is getting the message out to the public at large, so if you read this and think it's a good idea, spread it on blogs and to friends to make this a truly global boycott.

If enough people join this, within and outside this Facebook event, we can make a difference.

The boycott starts February 9th, 2009 and ends March 1st, 2009

The items on the boycott-list are:

* No purchases of CD's.

* No purchases of films.

* No purchases of computer games.

* No visits to movie theaters.

* No movie rentals.

The boycott started February 9th, 2009 and ends March 1st, 2009

But it is also up to you what you want to do with this.
We need your input, a boycott has to be bigger then its founders because the founders aren't what's important, it is the issues and the things that are at stake.
