Listen up! The US copyright office has published a report that proposes major changes to US copyright law which, should it become a bill and pass, could effectively strip all copyright protection from every artist, author, or other content creator. This would theoretically apply to every US citizen, AND would have a profound impact on international content creators whose work is used in the US.
We have until THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2015 to submit letters of opposition to the US Copyright Office.
Watch THIS VIDEO to hear about the report, and scenarios that could arise if this became law. It’s very long, but this is super important!
Read This, plus some of the sample letters on that page, and find the link on that page to submit your own letters.
Heavy response from artists worked when they tried to pass the Orphaned Works bill in the past, so don’t think your voice doesn’t matter! Please write a letter to the copyright office telling them about why this is a terrible idea!
