Having read the proposed changes to the existing copyright law, I am against them.

Making photographic images costs me both time and money. I have spent years acquiring the necessary skills to make successful images. I consider the images to be my property and cannot agree that they should be taken – STOLEN – without my permission or appropriate recompense. I am totally opposed to the proposed bill.
