If you are an artist or care about someone who is, you MUST read about this bill and take action to protect your(their) rights.
"The Orphan Works Bill is designed to benefit big corporations and legalize theft. Individual artists would have to pay to register their work at private institutions. Anything not registered would be an "orphan work" and free to use without penalty or payment.
Effectively, artists would lose any right to make money from their artwork.
We can prevent this. Ban the Orphan Works Bill!" (as stated on "thepetitionsite.com")
