Just a little bit of info on the photographic side of the copyright laws. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America and they have been working closely with congress to modify the laws ro make it easier for individuals and small businesses to make a claim if someone violates copyright laws. Kind of a small claims court if you will. It looks like this bill is going to come up for a vote in congress and if it does indees pass it would make it a lot easier for someone to file a claim against the abuser. I have not read the bill and don't know if it is even completely drafted yet but the organization (PPA) has been send all of us members just enough info so we will call our congressmen to try to push it through. How would this effect us? Well it would make Richards' point even more relevant to not post copyrighted materials.

Just wanted to give a heads up on this.
