ASMP Call to Action: USCO Sec. 512 Survey – Last Week

Less than one week left to participate!

Dear Photographer,

  • Has your copyrighted work been used on the Internet without your permission?
  • Are you a photographer, illustrator, graphic artist or designer, or other visual creator?
  • Are you an artist’s/photographer’s agent or representative, or an image licensing agent?
  • Have you discovered infringing use of your images, or the images you license, on the Internet and used the DMCA Takedown Notice procedure to have the images removed from a website?

If so, we’d like to know about your experience.

The US Copyright Office is conducting a study about the efficacy of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ( DMCA ) Takedown Notice procedure. ASMP and the following group of associations are working together to conduct a survey of image rights holders and licensing professionals to gather information for the Copyright Office study.

American Photographic Artists
Digital Media Licensing Association
Graphic Artists Guild
National Press Photographers Association
North American Nature Photography Association
Professional Photographers of America
PLUS (The Picture Licensing Universal System)

Please help us in our advocacy efforts as a partner in copyright reform on behalf of all American visual artists and participate in our anonymous short survey.


The survey will close at midnight, Sunday, March 13, 2016.

Thank you,

Thomas R. Kennedy
Executive Director
