Copyright law is about to change 

For more than a year Congress has been holding hearings for the drafting of a brand new US Copyright Act. At its heart is the return of Orphan Works 

What does this mean for artists? it means it will make it easier for infringers to steal artists works and harder for people who are making or trying to make a living out of art more difficult. This will effect every artist and all the artwork they have created, are creating, and will be created. Corporates, Big businesses, and publishers want this to pass to make money out off artists works without paying us artists for past, current, and future artwork. 

Basic Facts About The Law Being Proposed

 - “The Next Great Copyright Act” would replace all existing copyright law. 


 - It would void our Constitutional right to the exclusive control of our work.


 - It would “privilege” the public’s right to use our work.

 
 - It would “pressure” you to register your work with commercial registries.

 
 - It would “orphan” unregistered work.

 
 - It would make orphaned work available for commercial infringement by “good faith” infringers. 


 - It would allow others to alter your work and copyright these “derivative works” in their own names. 


 - It would affect all visual art: drawings, paintings, sketches, photos, etc.; past, present and future; published and unpublished; domestic and foreign. 

** Ways to stop this or preventing these changes from happening**

Waguu by Exobio
Waguu
A species part of fantasy world building project I'm starting. Her name is Waguu, her species is called the Teguta. Not a lot of info on this species yet other than that they are intelligent and part of a society involving multiple species of creature, including humans. Her design isn't solid yet, mostly just still fiddling with colors.
