Are you an artist?

If you are an artist concerned about losing your copyrights, you really want to read this article

Have you heard of the new Orphan Works legislation that is before Congress?

This matter might be familiar to some of you, as it has been dangerously floating around for the past 2 years.
The combination of apathy from the world of artists, and the involvement of big corporations trying to benefit financially from this huge potential pool of revenues have lead this awful legislation proposition to still be alive before Congress today.

Read this AWN article, judge by yourself, and take appropriate measures.
No one will ever speak for yourself better than yourself.

This whole thing has me angry! So I did what every good artist should do and emailed my state's senators. That was honestly the first time I ever did it, but it feels really good standing up for something that is important to me like this! Now hopefully they shoot it down!
