    ATLANTA (July 18, 2019) - The fight for copyright protection has progressed on Capitol Hill as the CASE Act gained approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee. U.S. Sens. John Kennedy (R-La.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance the long-sought legislation.

    The Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act, S. 1273, establishes a small-claims process for photographers and other small-business owners/content creators who find their work infringed on by another party. S. 1273 follows the introduction of companion legislation earlier this year in the House by Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, and Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

    Support for The CASE Act is pouring in from creators all over the country, including photographers like Anne Geddes, who traveled with PPA Members, the PPA Government Advocacy team, and other concerned groups to discuss copyright small-claims with the Senate Judiciary Committee ahead of the mark-up of the bill.

    The groups consisted of creators and other representatives of the Copyright Alliance, American Continental Group (representing songwriters and authors), National Press Photographers Association, Graphic Artists Guild, American Society of Media Photographers, American Bar Association – Intellectual Property Section, American Intellectual Property Law Association, Authors Guild, Songwriters Guild of America, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Recording Academy, and Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.

    “Money and complexity of the court system should not be barriers for small business entrepreneurs and artists to sue copyright infringers, who are very obviously breaking the law,” said Sen. Kennedy. “The CASE Act will ensure that Americans’ creative spirit is preserved and protected.”

    The CASE Act now has 57 co-sponsors in the House and 15 in the Senate, making it the rare, bipartisan bill everyone can support. Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), and Chris Coons (D-Del.) joined as cosponsors of the legislation this week.

    “Today the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the CASE Act…the first of four key votes before the legislation becomes reality,” PPA CEO David Trust relayed to his staff, waiting for the news back at headquarters in Atlanta. “It took us 13 years to get to this point,” Trust continued. “It was a big, big day on Capitol Hill...Today was a big day for PPA members and all American creators.”

    This year – on June 23, 2019 – PPAM (Professional Photographers Association of Massachusetts) along with members of NHPPA and others marked PPA’s 150th anniversary by recreating a photo of the first professional photography conference. The 1869 conference, held at the Horticultural Society of Boston on Tremont Street, culminated in all the participants gathering on the footbridge at the Boston Public Garden for a photo.

    In the recreation, photographers were posed in the same location as the 1869 group. The 2019 photo was taken by NHPPA and PPA member Scott Levine.

    PPAM President Melvin Guante gave his thoughts on the event. “This is what our photo community is all about. We are a family of imaging professionals and 150 years is a significant achievement for any organization,” said Melvin Guante. “Marking this date with our group photo pays homage to photo pioneers who paved the way for today’s professional photographers.”

    “Understanding and recognizing our journey as a photo community is the key to ensuring success for all photographers,” added Guante. “Our events, programs and members are the pillars that hold our great community together, as shown by this amazing and historic event.”

    Jay Goldsmith of Portsmouth, N.H. was presented with the National Award at the recent Awards Banquet held as part of the Annual Convention on April 27, 2019 at the Margate Resort in Laconia, N.H. The National Award is a special honor which recognizes outstanding services in professional photography.

    Since joining NHPPA in the early 1980s, Jay has continually given back to the photography industry in New Hampshire by sharing his knowledge and expertise speaking at various meetings, seminars, and conventions as well as conducting personal workshops. During the time Jay served on the Board of NHPPA, he was responsible for many innovative changes, most notable of which was establishing the library which served as a valuable learning resource for members. 

    Jay is perenially curious and never stops learning about and sharing photography techniques. In the spirit of bringing photography into the community, Jay had what was intended to be a one-year holiday exhibit in the seacoast area that was met with such enthusiasm, it turned into a four-year journey demonstrating how a 19th century platinum/palladium printmaking technique can be combined with modern digital photography.
