Claudine does a great job of describing the impact of this bill, please visit her blog, and then please go to this link and use a minute of your time to protect your images and artwork!
What is most disturbing to me as a mother, a blogger and an artist is that anything that I share online that I don't register becomes an "Orphan" and is open to use by onyone who likes the image and wants to use it for any purpose that they see fit.
I have a lot of images out there, and I don't know how it would be possible to register them, and then guard them against the fraudulent use by copyright infringers. The scope of abuse is mind boggling to me.
Take a minute to be heard!
