Thank you so much for your support! 
Hi, I'm proud to say that people are beginning to realize how important this Petition is.

We still need more signatures, but the outlook is getting better, and better!!!   

Have a great day! And         

Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene  

My Petition.

What I'm trying to do is help us keep the right to sue when our 'Copyrighted works' are stolen. They claim it's protected, but as you have mentioned, it's only protected if you are a Large Corporation with the money to back you up.

They seem to be the ones in control of this Issue,
and we lose our writings to them all the time. We should have the right to sue, but our Government backs the big Corporations, not us.

They are the ones that snuck in the 'Sonny Bono Act' 
That Act should have been appealed,repealed and thrown it the trash!

This Petition is not about that.  It's an attempt to give the 'Starving Artists' the same Rights as the Rich.
'The Right to sue' when our property is stolen and used, by them.

It happens more often than people think that it does.

The Internet makes it easier to hide the theft.
The Internet is World-wide. What's to stop someone from taking articles from one Country and selling them in their location? They could merely change the beginning, change the Title, and disguise it as their own. If the language was changed you would probably never find out.

A lot of people are assuming that the thief would Publish on the net. Not likely. They would want to hide it and their money earned as far out of sight as possible. You may never find out that it was stolen, even as your sales drop off. If you were lucky enough to get that far with it.

Whole books, and works of art can be copied and sold without the true owners permission or knowledge. World-wide sales of your 'article' would drop as common usage before you would ever find out that it was stolen.

Thank you for your time and consideration, and have a great day!

Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene 

Please help to restore our Copyright Protections. 
Thank you for your time and consideration, Darlene
