Copyright only serves to expand the powers of bothe the government and select corporations. Its powers need to be dismantled rather than strengthened

I wish to protect my fine art images, and I also don't think it is fair for the government to charge me $30-$80 per image to officially register copyright.

This act is unconstitutional. It aids Corporations who can't come though on their own promises. It's essentialy legalizing art theft which is complete and utter bullshit. These are the kind of laws one would expect of Dictatorships. Not Laws of a Country that stands for Freedom.

It should be legal to arrest the people who ever consider to suggest laws like this at congresses... Trying to pass illegal laws should be illegal in and of itself. It is criminal and should be punishable. That would at least make people think two to three times before trying to pass something.

I create thing for a living - this would essentially allow big banks and corporations to steal it and own our own works.

I'm opposed to this new bill denying the rights of the original artists, composers, et al, to own their intellectual and expressive do property. It's unconstitutional.

I'm signing because I don't see how anyone else has the right to charge me for my own work, or even has the right to claim it. I have videos showing creation of it. Let them show me theirs! What a no incentive to create new works. These people need to be ushered out of "public" service.
