We are tryingto stop a bill making the rounds in congress that would re-define
current copyright laws. In effect it would put the burden of enforcing copyrights on artists and you would have to register your work to have copyright protections.
In effect it would potentially kill forums like this one.
Please do read more about this LINK (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?threadid=629108&utm_medium=plugblock&utm_source=cgtalk)
And if you want to fight this lets do a poster to infrom people about this.
Keep in mind this sort of poster is meant to be shown on bulleting boards
in art schools across the world.
"STOP ORPHAN WORKS POSTER"
You have NTL for your sketch. IF you go beyond the assigned time limit , you have to post WHATEVER you have done after the time has expired, along with the FINAL drawing.
Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
They can be done on any medium.
If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
You can post an entry at anytime for the topic presented on this thead BEFORE the voting thread for THE WEEK has been posted.
The artist also has to post total length of time it took and program used.
Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
The topics will be picked at random from the list on the TOPICS thread >>LINK<< (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php/?t=145003)
