If you have not done so already please email, fax and call you Senators and Congress person to ask them to vote NO on both the House of Representatives Orphan Works bill and the Senate Orphan Works bill. Both bills are way to 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. I faxed, email and called my represenatives and I urge you to do the same.

Back in May (May 18, 2007), I mentioned that I submitted some work to the “Mail Me Art” collection in England. Well, today I received an email from the “Mail Me Art” folks informing me that out of the over 600 pieces submitted, my photo is one of the winners! My photo, along with 199 other pieces, will be in a book that will be printed and sold in bookstores and museums all over the world. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on when and where you can buy it.
