ALL ARTISTS...TAKE NOTE. Your work is AT RISK

The Orphan Works amendment to the US copyright law threatens to unleash a HUGE legal loophole that would put at risk EVERY ARTIST's creations.

As reported by many other artists on DA and elsewhere--this is FOR REAL. You NEED to start emailing, faxing, and calling your Senators if you are an artist or a friend of an artist and get this amendment stamped out.

Here is a press release by the ASMP, as well as an easy-to-use Draft Letter for reaching Senators and Representatives. I have also posted another draft letter on my own site below, and the Fax Numbers of Senators that are on the committee, deciding the fate of YOUR WORK. So USE THEM. Fax them. If you are a Canadian Citizen, there's info for you, too.

HERE. Do it NOW, while you're all riled up.

Do something and PASS THIS INFORMATION AROUND, or else all our unique creations may be at risk.
