While this blog is mainly focused on creativity and photography today I need to speak a bit about politics and a bill before the U.S. Congress.

If you care about copyrights, if you care about the ability of artist, authors, musicians or any creators of content to be able to sustain themselves by earning income from their creativity, you will be interested in the outcome of the current congressional battle.
