I received the following message from the Stock Artists Alliance (SAA) this morning and wanted to be sure that all my subscribers were aware of this important issue:
SAA learned yesterday about an aggressive last-minute push by Congress to pass Orphan Works legislation. The Senate was “hot lining” the Orphan Works Bill (S2913) for a vote, and the House was expected to follow suit.
We’ve now learned that the Senate bill was passed.
We must immediately turn our attention to the House.
We need to stop the House Judiciary Committee from folding their own bill (HR5889) and moving to adopt the Senate version.
PLEASE EMAIL CONGRESS RIGHT AWAY.
The CapWiz site is set up to make this a very quick and easy process. A letter is prepared, and all you need to do is enter your contact information.
