Removal of teeth

Due to an act of world leading arsey these posts will now trickle to a stop. England has passed the orphan bill which effectively takes the ownership of photography, illustration, ideas posted on the internet out of the hands of the creators and presents it to anyone seeking use of said artwork without permission (IE- for FREE) so long as they have had a look for the actual copyright holder... how you prove that you 'looked' is anyone's guess. Luckily, for a price, you can register EVERY piece of artwork you post, or have ever posted with a newly created central agency. It used to be that if you created something it was yours until such a time as someone paid you to use it. With this new bill you must now pay for a right that you already had to be protected from a threat that the removal of that right has introduced

That's some catch that catch 22?
The best!
