Quote of the Week by Mark Twain

“Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.” ~Mark Twain

This is ironic that I found this quote today. Earlier I was reading about a copyright law that just passed in congress called the “Orphan Art Act” or something like that. Basically it states that if an artist puts his or her artwork on the Internet outside companies can claim it as their own and sue you, unless the artist registers the artwork as theirs, which will have a price tag I read. So now, in addition, to most of us artists not being paid as it stands for our work we’ll have to pay to keep it ours. Luckily the bill has went to the House of Reps, and the nation’s artists still have a chance to block it. Finger’s crossed here!
