PPA Heads to Capitol Hill March 14-15 - PPA Today

PPA Heads to Capitol Hill March 14-15

PPA is visiting Capitol Hill on March 14 and 15 to tell new members of Congress about professional photographers and the importance of strong copyright laws.  We will be meeting with members of the House Committee on the Judiciary, specifically those representatives who serve on the Subcommittee on Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet (IP Subcommittee).

As an added bonus, many of the members we will meet with in the House co-sponsored and/or voted to pass the bill repealing the 1099 tax reporting mandate. Knowing the representatives viewed this bill favorably tells us they are sympathetic to the struggles facing small-business owners and will understand the financial impact of copyright infringement on our members.

PPA will also take the time to attend the first of two IP Subcommittee hearings on rogue websites, sites that host and often distribute infringing content. We'll let you know more in the following days.
