Another Side of Orphan Works, please

Ellen Million breaks down U.S. Copyright Law and traces the history of the Orphan Works bill (with handy link citations) to help clear up some misperceptions on existing copyright law and the new proposal.

Found via this BoingBoing entry about an article by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (who support the Orphan Works legislation) in a comment by Nelson Pavlosky. How’s that for a citation?

Public in Portsmouth

Susan Schwake is another veteran IF’er in the news of late: The City of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Cultural Commission‘s very-cool Overnight Art program chose her as one of the artists for this summer’s public installations. Susan’s Dialog is a BIG window banner that makes finding a spot in the Portsmouth parking garage a little more fun:

Susan’s official unveiling for Dialog is at the Hanover Street Parking Garage in Portsmouth, Wednesday, May 21 at 10:00 AM EST. New England IF’ers could stop in for the event, then do a tour of the other 5 Overnight Art displays; the installations dot Portsmouth, Stratham, Rye, and Rochester, NH (PDF).

Camilla Engman on your iGoogle

The lovable nerds in the iFri server room were giggling with excitement to discover that iFri blog superstar Camilla Engman designed a beautiful featured theme you can slap on your iGoogle home page:

Camilla’s theme changes as the hours of time you waste at work reading RSS on google roll byâ?¦ We think it’s the prettiest among some other big names in the Google Artist Themes directory (but Todd Oldham’s isn’t too bad).

Speaking of Rip-Off Artists

Regionalâ??s Self-Portrait Project

a majority of contemporary paintings are created in dafen, china by talented but anonymous artists who use their skills to recreate famous works of art. an organization called Regional invited some of those craftsmen to paint themselves. “The final works show the technical, creative, and professional facets of the artists identities subsumed by the styles and relationships they maintain with specific famous artists.”

thanks to my brother and boing boing for the story!
