Protect your photos and creative property

This was posted on one of the groups I belong to and it is important to all of us who have blogs or places we put our creative property or our photos of family.
Protect your photos and creative property
Posted: 15 May 2008 09:50 AM CDTI read about this issue on Claudine Hellmuth's blog and wanted to pass it along, especially to those with blogs and online galleries. The "Orphan Act" is up for vote in the House and the Senate. This could affect all crafters, designers, authors and scrapbookers who post images of their work online. If passed, photos on the Internet will be subject to this new copyright legislation and this new bill will essentially make them public domain - which means anyone can use your photos, in any way, without your knowledge or permission. Claudine's post provides a link to an electronic letter that you can send to your local representatives - all you have to do is fill in your contact information. It will take you all of two minutes! Please take a moment and make your voice heard!Enjoy the day!
I already went and put in my request that this not happen, now it's your turn.
Angel hugs
