Photographers Share Their Copyright Story

By now you know PPA is always fighting for your rights on Capitol Hill, lobbying and advocating for improvements to copyright law (including a small claims option). 

You can be proud of the "big-picture" ways that your association is working to improve your business's sustainability and profits via copyright reform, but there's a new way that you can personally pitch in!

A few months ago, PPA started working on new ways to get PPA members and non-members alike to share their copyright infringement stories. After a few tweaks, it's time to roll out this new "Share Your Story" tool

Submissions can be made by both members and non-members. Share the page on your social networks. We want YOUR story and the stories of all you know who have been affected by copyright infringement. 70% of professional photographers have dealt with copyright infringement, so we know you have stories. Now, we have an opportunity to share those stories with congress and help pass the Fairness for American Small Creators Act (FASCA). 

We need to get FASCA passed because it will allow you to protect your work and provide adequate and affordable recourse if your work is stolen, without the immense time and monetary demand normally required.

We only have one shot to change things and this is why we need to hear your stories. Please make a short video of an experience you've had with copyright infringement and upload it to the link. With your stories, we will be able to advocate for a better Small Claims process on Capitol Hill that will protect the work of photographers and creative artists.
