I have a Petition to get rid of the 3 year 'Statute of Limitations' on Copyrights. Did you know that your work, writing, photography, etc... can be stolen right from under your nose and that if you cannot afford an Attorney, they can use your work and get away with it? I had one Attorney tell me that they would represent me in my Lawsuit for $200,000. Wow...! How cheap, huh..? Yeah, right... I have 4 Major Corporations that I could've sued if I hadn't been poor!!! Nothing seems to be sacred for the poor, but did you know that Patents supposedly do not have a 'Statute of Limitations?' Most are owned by Corporations. I had a new 'Patentable' project. It would have cost me $10,000 just to file for the Patent. So why didn't I file for it? Yeah, right... $10,000? HUH..? That is why Corporations mainly own them, you need the monetary backing to get one. My book made millions for 4 large Corporations, and I did not even get acknowledged, instead they claimed it as their own. It's protected by the Laws... as theirs... even though I have difinitive proof that they stole it from me. I have letters, mail receipts, and more, proving that I wrote the book that became the Movies! Two of them. It does me no good, and it will not do you any good in the same situation. ALWAYS Register your work. I did, and it did me no good, but a Judge will not even listen to you if you have no documentation, and that's only if you can afford an Attorney to represent you in time. It's been more than ten years since I wrote my book, and almost ten years since I got ripped off. Emotional pain? You bet! I wrote a Petition. All of my other books are left unfinished. How does this help the 'Greater Good' when they have let me afraid to write? Please help me to change the great Injustice of the Copyright Laws. Help me to get rid of the 3 year Statute of limitations as a possible detterrent to them for their thefts. If they know that they can be sued at any time, maybe they will hire the good writers and quit ripping off the poor. This is my hope. This is my dream! You may have to cut and paste to get your copy of the Laws pertaining to Copyrights, and click a 'tag' or my picture to get to the Petition. I'm sorry for the inconvienience, but even though nothing is working for me on this site, I refuse to give up!!! Download your copy of the Copyright Laws.

The Petition link doesn't work in the second share, not sure about the first one either.

The 'Starving Artists' deserve to be paid for their work just like everyone else. It can take years to finish a Project, just to have it stolen?! I think not!!!
