For USA Copyright Holders-Orphan Works Bill


posted on 22nd of may, 2008

Orphan Works Bill...

Call your Senators and Congress person to ask them to vote no on both the House of
Representatives bill and the Senate bill. Both bills are way too broad and seriously limit an artist's right to protect their own work. Even the House bill, which is being touted as the better bill, puts the onus on the artist to register their images twice, with the Copyright Office and with a newly developed Orphan Works registry, in order to not be considered an Orphan or "abandoned" Work.

You can use the follow web sites to get information to contact you appropriate representative.
