Orphaned Work-is another way for the Gov to take our life away!

If you want to see something truly scary please check out the site below.
Are you an Artist, paint, draw, photography and all the other creative folks need to hear about this.
If we do not do something, none of our creations, will be ours any more.
And why are many of us only hearing about it now? What does the Gov have to hide? Other than to take more of our rights away.
I do not make a lot of money with my art to date but I hope that will change in time and I will be able to help put food on the table and pay bills, just like any other working American.
With this Bill, it will be impossible.
First part of Article...
As an artist, you have to read this article or you could lose everything you've ever created!

An Orphaned Work is any creative work of art where the artist or copyright owner has released their copyright, whether on purpose, by passage of time, or by lack of proper registration. In the same way that an orphaned child loses the protection of his or her parents, your creative work can become an orphan for others to use without your permission.
