Through our advocacy on Capitol Hill, we also work to ensure the general public understands the importance of copyright laws pertaining to the photographic industry. That's why PPA and the Copyright Alliance co-hosted the "Recording Our History: Faces Behind the Camera" briefing for congressmen and their staff.
The event was the first of many Capitol Hill briefings focusing on photography and the copyright community at large--an effort by PPA and the Copyright Alliance to educate legislators on the importance of maintaining strong copyright laws. Building on its success is a September 2011 photography exhibit to be hosted in the Russell Senate Office Building. This exhibit will feature images contributed by photographers Denis Reggie, PPA President Don Dickson, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, and PPA member Peter Lik, M.Photog., among others.
PPA works hard to protect and educate its members regarding their copyright "rights" to help them remain successful image-makers for years to come. And that only helps your business, too!
