These are dark days for all creators and copyright holders. After a two month campaign by Google funded astroturf group Public Knowledge, the newly appointed librarian of congress Carla Hayden [an advocate of “open sourcing”] has fired Maria Pallante the register of copyright. Pallante was the only one standing between Google and what is left of the copyright system.
Oh, not good. NOT good. If I wanted to open-source my images, I'd mark them as such. Leave my copyright ALONE.
Day Later: Damning, in light of the above.
