This is a very good letter Ken. This legislation is going to effect everyone. I arranged for a letter from the The Illustrators' Partnership that was prepared for "our International Friends and Colleagues" to be published in a letter to the British Prime Minister on the 6th July 2008. Gordon Brown's Office for Direct Communications replied that The letter has been forwarded to the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform so that they may reply directly. That department has not replied yet. If you wish I could arrange for another letter to be written enclosing your post above with the request that the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform respond to our concerns. The letter was published here: http://www.lettertothepm.co.uk/violation_berne_copyright_convention.htm
