it is bad. but idc. probably wont really go through anyways.
fuckers man, just trying to sponge all the money they can get from you
THIS IS FUCKD!!!
You guys should really research this.
"Now if youíve taken the time to actually read though this information you will see that the Orphan Works Act of 2008 does not propose to strip away every copyright which ever existed, it doesnít legalize art theft and it does not seek to deny you any compensation or moneys for the use of your work.
It is, in my opinion, a fair and balanced approach to a current problem. Itís not a perfect system because the way copyright registration currently works doesnít allow for the easy search of any owner and people will undoubtedly continue to find flaws and shortcomings in it as it begins the long trek through Congress once again.
However it is some of the better copyright legislation to wind its way through the halls of Congress over the last couple of decades and I personally do not have a problem with it as itís language and intent is very much similar to Fair Use and I do not believe that the nightmare-like scenarios being pandered about as inescapable consequences will actually happen. If the bill continues on the course set by the House version there will most likely be enough legal grey area to scare off most people from attempting to use orphan works and in any event the bill still faces strong opposition from some quarters and Iím slightly doubtful on the billís chances on this second time through the legal system.
So we all can wait and watch and all that I ask is that you all take the time to at least educate yourself on the facts before you continue to disseminate fear-mongering interviews and articles amongst yourselves.
If you are going to choose to oppose or support anything base your position on the facts."
This is so old my big toes nail feels young
copyright laws will ALWAYS be f***ked because of lawless countries....
