Here in the UK, our government is proposing major changes to copyright. Someone, somewhere has forgotten that our creative endevours are our property. Thankfully, a few organisations have stepped up to the plate and have raised more than a few objections:-

One of the signatories not mentioned directly is the British Society of Underwater Photographers, and I know US-based creators representatives have made their voice heard.

UK photographers should be ready to contact their MP and raise individual concerns. I will post more when the time is right.
