As you may already know, I’ve written quite a bit about copyright trolls and Getty’s practice of “legalized extortion.”
In the legal community, they prefer to market their services using the antiseptic phrase “infringement monetization.”
Me? I prefer the extortion angle because it’s much closer to the truth.
Anyway, if you missed my earlier posts, you can read them here:
With that in mind, I wanted to let you know that there’s a new petition to amend copyright law such that it would put an end to copyright trolling.
I signed the petition.
If you’re interested, you can too.

P.S. You may need to create an account on WhiteHouse.gov in order to sign the petition, which is what I did. It’s simple, name and email, just like opting in to a list.
