RobD4E's Profile Picture
Robert DiFiore
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Current Residence: Planet Earth (Occasional Trips to Planet Rob)
Favourite genre of music: I respect the talent for music but don't follow it. If it sounds neat I like it. So most likely mainstream Top 40 stuff. Purists constantly scoff at me for that. So I smile and smack off their berets and/or hipster glasses.
Favourite photographer: Jimmy Olsen
Favourite style of art: Traditional, Portraiture, Fantasy and Conceptual Illustration, Sequential Art, Cartooning
Operating System: P.O.S.
Shell of choice: Nut
Personal Quote: I hate modern art. If a 3 year old can do it, it's a waste of museum space.

Artists! There's a good chance we're going to lose the rights to our work unless we stop legislation that's being proposed to congress. This has the potential to infect every country in the world. We need your help to stop this as soon as possible! Brad Holland is an expert in this new legislation and explains why artists worldwide will suffer if our current copyright law is replaced by the new proposals.

Orphan Works Roundtable
Conducted by the Small Business Administration
Salmagundi Art Club, New York, NY
Initiated by the Illustrators’ Partnership of America, the Artists Rights Society and the Advertising Photographers of America, and conducted by Tom Sullivan, Director of the Office of Advocacy of the US Small Business Administration. This was the first effort to assess the economic impact of the Orphan Works Acts H.R. 5889 and S. 2913 on creators and small businesses. Seventeen distinguished panelists spoke, all freelance working artists and stakeholders who would be directly impacted by this proposed legislation. Six 3’x4’ exhibit panels demonstrated orphan work infringements.
Presenter Bio
Presenters submitted written statements to IPA after the meeting. We compiled these into notebooks and distributed 14 notebooks of SBA Orphan Works Roundtable statements to key members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees.
