As we all know far too well, our copyright system does not work well for photographers, especially high volume photographers. Determining what work to register and when to do so is confusing.

Determining whether and when work has been published as required by copyright law can be incredibly difficult and getting the determination wrong can result in the invalidation of a registration in a subsequent infringement action….
The mission of ASMP Advocacy efforts are designed to empower still and motion photographers, and associated imaging professionals; and educate both members and non-members about policies that impact both the person and the profession.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead
