Hi, to all of you that have encouraged me with this Petition, I thank you. I am trying really hard to get this Petition signed.
It's important not only to me, but to all of the other Artists that have gotten ripped off in the past, and the one that don't yet know that they are going to be ripped off.
If we allow this law to remain unchanged there will more than likely be future victims.
Writers, Artists, etc... are vulnerable, especially now that they can post their 'works' on the net. Most of them do not believe that anyone would do such a thing as to rip them off.
The ones that I talked to that were ripped off still find it hard to believe that it happened to them. We are a trusting breed. Just look around at how many young writers are posting, should this be their future. An adult shouldn't have to deal with it.
Our 'works' are our livelihood. We spend months at a time, and sometimes years perfecting it. Why should we only have a 3-year umbrella?
That's time enough to hide evidence, or shred it. Because of the Internet, it can now be stolen and hidden anywhere in the World. It can be hidden long enough to take away our RIGHT to sue for Infringement.
Attorneys need time to collect and review evidence. They have to have 'Depositions' taken. They need time to serve subpoenas to witnesses and to subpoena records, etc... How can we expect to find Representation with the clock ticking so quickly?
We were led to believe that we had 70 years, not just three. Our children are supposed to be able to inherit our Royalties, as other's children inherit an Estate, Trust fund, or any other means that we have to care for our children after we're gone.
Three years is just simply not enough time, too many things can happen. Help to restore the Copyright Protections that we were promised in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Laws pertaining to this right.
I want to plant trees and grass on the playgrounds in the poor areas of town, we only had sand to play in. I can't afford to.
I was dream of buying up blankets in the winter and distributing them, it gets cold here. Warm meals, I can't give them.
I want to start an Orchard, I already have the trees in buckets. I have no money to start this business. Trees and Nature are important to me.
I want to feel free to write, without the fear that it could be stolen and used without my knowledge, and with no fear on their part of repercussions.
Our Civil rights are at stake. If we let them get away with taking just one of them, what's to stop them from taking away the rest?
This concerns everybody, or at least it should. Our Government slips Laws and Statutes in behind our backs all of the time. Here we have a chance to actually do something about it, sign a Petition to save this Right!
The way our Rights keep getting taken away from us without a voice, without a chance, that's evil.
Why would you personally want to give up one of our Rights? Why not help me fight for this?
If this Right isn't important to you, what Right are you going to get taken away from you that no one will concern themselves with?
It could happen, and as far as I can see with this Administration, it could be sooner than you think!
Help me to get rid of the 3-year Statute of Limitations on Copyrights!
Respectfully and sincerely, Darlene http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/264941759
