So i've been outside painting my family's house for the past... 6 or 7 hours?
But a friend found another article breaking down what's going on with the Orphan Works stuff.
Haven't been able to do any research or have a brain to write to anyone cause i've been working all day. But good to know. This read is straight forward and explanatory.graphicpolicy.com/2015/07/20/d…
Though communicating with these people responsible for coming up with the Orphan Works is wise. I don't have the head for it this time around. (my whole week will be painting our two story house)
I still encourage all of y'all to continue to voice your opinion and take a stand when your lively hood is in danger. Even if this thing is still just an idea to throw around (and most definitely toss out).
Whew. Still gotta try and calm down though.
Please take a moment to look over this
a bit. This is a big deal.
Just found it on tumblr. If it's not true, then woopdeedoo. But for anyone looking to live off art or take care of their art 'babies', this is dangerous and stupid.
Please consider writing to the copyright folks as the link will lead. As artists and creative people this affects us all.
