ASMP Requests Call for Action NOW!
Find your senators' name and contact information and send them a letter to express your concerns. Be sure to include this language:
I urge you to oppose this bill unless and until it is amended to contain at least the minimum provisions that are critical to protect photographers, including but not limited to a notice of use that must be filed before the use is made, upon penalty of losing eligibility to claim orphan work status for failure to file the notice; an archive of the notices, to be maintained by the Copyright Office or an approved third party; and other protections that appear in the current (May 15, 2008) language of H.R. 5889.
A sample letter has been posted on ASMP's website. We all need to work together to fight this one!
