Thanks to Aimee for providing this!  It’s a fast, easy way to let the correct people in gubbamint know you oppose the Orphan Works Act, which basically strips artists of copyright rights on their work. 

Please, Please, Please do this!  Now.  It’s time sensitive. And pass on the link.

Take Action: Don’t Let Congress Orphan Our Work

We’ve set up an online site for visual artists to e-mail their Senators and Representatives with one click. This site is open to professional artists, photographers and any member of the image-making public.

We’ve provided sample letters from individuals representing different sectors of the visual arts. If you’re opposed to the Orphan Works act, this site is yours to use.

For international artists and our colleagues overseas, we’ve provided a special link, with a sample letter and instructions as to whom to write.

2 minutes is all it takes to write Congress and protect your copyright:
