Creative America, the organization formed by studios and unions to drum up support for anti-piracy legislation, announced a new campaign of Tv and radio ads in “targeted local markets.”

They also have created a banner ad, “What to Do During an Internet Blackout,” that will be featured on Creative America websites and on a huge Times Square billboard.

Mike Nugent, executive director of Creative America, said, “With the opponents of the bill trafficking in misinformation, fear tactics and public relations stunts like blacking out their websites—in essence censoring the Internet themselves—we thought it more important than ever to get the message out that these bills are reasoned, narrow, effective and necessary measures to combat foreign rogue sites which are preying on American consumers and costing American jobs. This message needs to be heard by both our elected officials and the general public and our ad campaign is designed to reach both audiences.”
