Please guys, this is extremely important to know. :(

Is the deadline to send letters to the US Copyright Office in opposition of the 2015 Orphan Works Act!

Anyone, any company, could use your photos, drawings, anything without you knowing! If you have any desire to attach your name to your work or to support content creators, you'll be pleased to know that under the current copyright law, you are automatically granted copyright whenever you take a photo or draw a picture. But you will be terrified to know that the Orphan Works Act suggests that anyone, commercial included, can take your work and use it without consulting you if they claim ignorance to its creator.

*It will be extremely hard to monetize your work. Who would pay you if they can take it for free? 
*You may find your Facebook pictures of yourself in commercials without your consent. 
*To obtain copyright by this law, you have to spend time and money to register ALL of your work, past, present, and future, to a for-profit Copyright Clearance Center and in all likelihood, renew all of these registrations every few decades.
*If you are international, this still includes you. This Act would legalize anyone in the US to use your work without consent.

The last time the Orphan Works Act appeared in 2008, it was revoked by the outpour of upset letters from artists. Please take a moment to tell lawmakers that this is still a terrible idea in 2015! I have sent mine!

I am very confused as to how the heck I wasn't watching you because I swear I was already. *grump face* Ah well, fixed now. Hopefully.
