ASMP is working with APA, NPPA, PPA and visual arts organizations to create a Small Claims Court as a reasonable recourse for members seeking relief from copyright infringements. Currently, the only venue for copyright infringement is the federal district courts making the process too expensive and time consuming for photographers. Here is the full white paper. Here’s how you can help:
1). Send chapter president Mike Ritter (email@example.com) your experiences in dealing with infringement to be used in lobbying lawmakers.
2). Let chapter president Mike Ritter (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you’d be interested in being part of an advocacy group which will visit House of Representatives Judiciary Committee member David Cicilline (D, RI) sometime in August.
3). Tell photographers you know in other parts of the country to write to members of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee who represent them.
There will be more info coming towards the end of July which you can use to help make the Small Claims Court for visual content creators a reality. Stay tuned.
If you’re interested in attending a board meeting, please let chapter president Mike Ritter (email@example.com) know. We have a strong board but are always in need of new members. The next meeting will be in September.
Read the July edition of Cole’s Corner. Cole muses on a life in photography and fills you in on the new 55 Film and the new Hasselblad X1D mirrorless medium format camera.
