From Tim Holtz's blog:
Please check out claudine hellmuth's blog. It discusses a very disturbing "Orphan Act" up for voting. This effects all crafters, designers, authors etc. and scrapbookers too. My post here brings up the issue to scrapbookers because their photos on the internet will be subject to this new copyright legislation. and this new bill will essentially make them public domain. Take a moment and make your voice heard. I did it, and honestly it took less than one minute to do so...t!m
This is pretty scary stuff, so take few minutes to check it out and act on it!
