Please note in the US we are still facing the threat of orphan work bills advertising to do a good but written in such ways that much harm is done to current copyright protections. Please check here for updates. Please educate yourself on this controversial issue and then weigh in on this subject with the United States Congress and Senate who may be considering the issue this week. Those who do not live in the US may still address the issue; see this link for more information.
Thanks very much for your consideration of this issue and any follow up steps you take to continue copyright protections to those who work should be respected whether they work as artists, cartoonists, photographers or happen to snap a photograph.
Many thanks to the people and organizations who had done so much work on this issue.
A Monday stitching post is planned for later, about noon (us, west coast).
