That's very interesting - thank you for the link!

It appears as if it's mostly centered around helping photographers enforce
their copyright - which is a good thing - but may not directly impact a
number of the issues that are faced in the museum/library world (namely
slavish reproductions of 2d works of art that are in the public domain). I
think I may write in something to that effect to make sure that they're
aware of that problem and I encourage others to do the same!

Also I noticed that the link in the prior email wasn't working exactly but
this works for me:
