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.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
