    Orphan Works: Danger To All Artists!!

    The bill is referred to loosely as the "Orphan Works" bill. The
    essence of it is that if it passes, it will become very difficult for
    all artists to protect their artwork from infringement or theft.
    Artists would be required to pay money to private registry
    organizations to register every single piece of art they create in
    order to receive ANY legal protection for their art. Because if you
    don't register your work, according to the new bill, it's not
    valuable and therefore you are "orphaning" or releasing your legal
    rights to your art

    This would include any drawing, sketch, painting, photograph,
    sculpture, video recording, etc. that you ever create, or have
    created since 1974.
    For an article that summarizes the situation:

    http://mag.awn.com/index.php?ltype=p...no=3605&page=1

    For an audio interview that elaborates on the problem follow this link:

    http://www.SellYourTvConceptNow.com/...nformation.mp3


    At the end of the first article you will find links to the people who
    are fighting this: the Illustrators Partnership. They have been
    organizing artist groups around the world to oppose the bill.

    searchterm=00185

    This issue will need the support of artists willing to write and fax
    and email their congressmen in the next few months. Particularly for
    us artists in California, because apparently California congressmen
    play a key role on the various boards that would oversee the bill.

    mm, when I click on housing you guys only have links to low income housing type websites. I know other schools have housing help with set locations/lowered rates with little to no hassle. Do you guys offer something similar to this?

    Housing?

    Hey Staaron,

    Unfortunately we currently do not offer the type of housing assistance you are asking about. We do plan to have a set housing arrangement in the near future. Sorry about that.

    Damn, thats impressive! I visited you guys a couple weeks ago and I'm definitely gonna apply for spring next year.
    Great school, great teachers.

    I know there is a difference between a design school like art center and a school like laafa but for illustration/entertainment, laafa is definitely the way to go.

    I posted my thoughts about both schools here if your interested.

    Great Video

    Who's the speaker? Thanks for the kind words Epias. We try to offer students with the skills to succeed, and I can definitely second your opinions on the Concept Design Academy. Kevin is one of the best teachers I have had the luck to study with. Sounds like you are doing it the right way!
