Orphan Works Copyright LawIf you are not already aware of it, there is a bill in our government right now, called the Orphan works act of 2008. (S.2913) If this bill passes, you might lose the copyright you hold on your own creations. There are many arts organizations fighting this bill. There are many opinions...I suggest that you form your own.
If you are interested in reading the bill, writing your representatives, or just finding out more, here are some helpful sites.
