Dead artists, families, loved ones ... and the Prime Minister

The facility for petitioning the British Prime Minister via his 10 Downing Street website has been invoked by Tania Spriggens of DACS, the Design and Artists Copyright Society. The rubric for the petition runs as follows:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to ensure the full implementation of the Artist's Resale Right for artists' families and loved ones as soon as possible and review any decision that seeks to deny artists the rights they deserve. More details

Submitted by Tania Spriggens of Design and Artists Copyright Society – Deadline to sign up by: 02 January 2010".
Signatories as of this morning totalled 1,194.  If you are a British citizen and want to sign the petition, follow this link. The Kat says thanks, Louise O'Callaghan (Hardwicke Building) for the information.
