TO LS's 8000 Members: Dont Lurk, Work It: Protect your copyright

Those ofyou who have a habit of checking in but not posting, we need you to act just this once and sign up on our Anti-Orphan Works Petition. All we need is your name, location and profession. Whether or not you are a US citizen or resident makes no difference. This is a petition from an international body.


The Orphan Works Bill that may go up before the US Congress is an attempt to facilitate appropriation of imagery, illustrations and other visual works that appear without credit lines or whose authors have expired or somehow disappeared. Granted, sometimes the use of images is needlessly complicated by the fact that a work has no clear author; but this bill, were it to be legislated, would adversely affect all of us. There are many instances when your imagery is stripped of its credit line, particularly in web use, and under the new bill this would endanger its copyright protection.


It is a simple thing really. Just register your disapproval of this bill. Go to THIS THREAD and sign up. We will take care of the rest. I fyou wish to read our Prologue to the petition, go to This Thread and have a look. Thanks.

Strange…… how the champions of democracy in Iraq America, Britain, Australia and co take a very different line at home!!!!

I agree, Imants. It seems that when Big Money enters the picture, too often Democracy
is ordered to be cropped or left on the cutting room floor.
