As a professional photographer, you are passionate about copyright laws. You’d love to make a stand on Capitol Hill to express your concerns and represent your interests, but that’s just not realistic. So who is in your corner, fighting these important battles for you? PPA. (You saw that coming, didn’t you?).
Our Copyright & Government Affairs department keeps a watchful eye on the issues that matter most to you and the photographic industry in general. They meet with congressional staff and members of the U.S. Copyright Office and actively participate in a number of coalitions that lobby for stronger copyright laws and a variety of other small-business matters, too.
If you have any questions about PPA’s position on a particular issue or would like more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
