Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Many of you already know about the upcoming webzine Code Z: Black
Visual Culture Now. I am writing you in hopes that you will take a
moment to look at this web resource and will consider disseminating it
through your personal and professional networks.

Set to launch in August, Code Z will be an unmatched source for insider
news on black visual culture, from fine art to graphic design to
fashion to filmmaking to architecture to photojournalism.

Code Z readers will find short news bites updated daily, as well as
longer, in-depth articles that will explore a variety of visual artists
and the scenes they inhabit.

Code Z will also be a portal for black visual creatives to share ideas,
thoughts, beefs, resources, and trade secrets. We hope that Code Z will
become a central node for an unparalleled community of black visual
creatives and others interested in black visual culture.

People listen to you when you speak. That's why I'm asking you to share
this site with whatever networks are at your disposal by forwarding a
link to it or spreading the message in whatever way is most appropriate

Fwd: CAA lobbying on copyright legislation

please distribute where appropriate.

Subject: CAA lobbying on copyright legislation

CAA has been working hard to get the US copyright law revised, to make it
less risky and confusing for authors, artists, scholars, libraries, and
museums to use "orphan" copyrighted works in publications and in artworks.
These are works that are still in copyright but for which no copyright
holder can be found.

The US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee is now considering a
bill, H.R. 5439, the Orphan Works Act of 2006, to address this problem. In a
nutshell, if a user of an "orphan work," does a diligent search to locate
the copyright owner, and is unsuccessful, the risks of using that work are
greatly reduced.

Please write to the Committee and to your own Congressional Representative
to urge enactment of H.R. 5439 during this Congress. To send a customized

Fwd: SavetheInternet Update: Call Your Senator

Subject: SavetheInternet Update: Call Your Senator

Dear Save the Internet member:

Here's the latest from the Senate Commerce Committee, where a "mark-up" on
several amendments to Senator Stevens' Telecom Act began today at 10 a.m.:
The Snowe-Dorgan Net Neutrality amendment will probably come before the
Committee by mid-to-late afternoon. If successfully passed, the amendment
would put Net Neutrality language into the massive Telecommunications Act.
This is critical.

If your (or your readers'/members') Senators sit on the committee, they need
to hear from you immediately. Ask them to support the Snowe-Dorgan Net
Neutrality amendment to the larger Telecom Act (S. 2686).

Here are the members of the committee who have not taken a strong position
in favor of Internet freedom and for the Snowe-Dorgan Amendment. Please urge
your members to call them now:

P.S. Here are some recent articles and videos in support of SavetheInternet
and Net Neutrality:

*An Internet for the Few or the Many?*
*Michael Copps has a message for the technology industry when it comes to
Net neutrality: Get involved.*

*Don't Let the Service Providers Discriminate on the Internet*
*Two of the Internet's top business innovators made a case for Net
Neutrality today in an op-ed written for the San Jose Mercury News.
"Reinstating the Internet's core principle of net neutrality won't stand in
the way of innovation," write John Doerr and Reed Hastings. "Indeed, net
neutrality has, until recently, been the very foundation of Internet
San Jose Mercury

*Protecting Net Neutrality from the Neutricidal Telcos*
*For AT&T and Verizon to be screaming for the protection of the free market
against Net Neutrality is "sheer hypocrisy," writes Internet guru Cory
Doctorow. "They themselves are creatures of government regulation, basing
their business on government-granted extraordinary privileges."*

*No Tolls on the Internet*
*Only a Congress besieged by high-priced telecom lobbyists could possibly
consider handing the Internet over to the handful of cable and telephone
companies that control online access for 98 percent of the broadband market.
