Copyright reform is necessary and like Pamela, I’m not sure what the answers are. It would be great to get a large group of people in a room with various points of view and interests to hash out what would be a workable framework that would both protect individual content creators yet avoid imposing such huge fines that relatively innocent content sharers have the opportunity to remedy the wrong without being pushed off the internet.

When the late author, the alter ego of Theodor Seuss Geisel, was penning his beloved Beginner Books for Random House in the 1960s, he’d have his editor in chief, Michael Frith, over to his house, where they’d work until the wee hours. And when they’d get stuck, according to “Dr. Seuss & Mr. Geisel” by Judith and Neil Morgan, Geisel would open a secret door to a closet filled with hundreds of hats. Then, he and Frith would each pick a different hat, perhaps a fez, or a sombrero, or maybe an authentic Baroque Czech helmet or a plastic toy viking helmet with horns. They’d sit on the floor and stare at each other in these until the right words came to them.”Collectors Weekly
I’ve spent the past couple of weeks working on a visual art piece that celebrates my love of romance novels. My work is pair of high heels that have been decoupaged with romance novel covers (both old skool and recent releases). They are entirely functional and I have plans to wear them … pretty much everywhere . Essentially, they were for an assignment and will be in a small exhibition/showing that was organised by my tutorial tomorrow night (part of the assignment criteria included distributing the work) but I’d actually rather share them with romance readers because I know they’d have a deeper appreciation for them. And did I mention the title of the work? I’ve called them “The Sole of a Romantic”.
