TODAY: March 6, 2012 is the Launch Date of 3L: Lies, Liberties & Literature Days ©2012, my 50TH Literary/Ed-YOU-cational HOLIDATE. Eventologically slated and scheduled for the 6TH of each Month, 3L: Lies, Liberties & Literature Days’ Premises contain several mandatory juicy & meaty Points that Writers/Authors of ‘all Genres’ must heed and address as We are clearly immersed in The Age of Digital Electronics (although not totally transparent) where FAST doesn’t even begin to explain ‘wassup!’
I agree that High Tech is fab; while it can be intrusive. It’s (somewhat) easy; yet it can be difficult to understand. However, the prevailing Point We Writers must constantly consider is ‘Our Rights, Rites & ‘Writes’ in all of this Juxtapositioning. Although there are 2 Sides to every Coin, it’s the Written Word that has ‘the Last Say’ as it tumbles around in CyberSpace – making a Name although it might not be correct…in the least. And I’ll tell you why in the next Passage.
Being in the Event-Planning Biz/Industry since 1990 whose Roots are in Writing, Trends come and go and then resurface every 20 years. I’ve been fortunate in being around ‘Creative People’ all my Life. Now: For once & for all of us Writers, 2 of 3L’s Platforms are Crusades that will be named and released in mid- April along with an eBook, my First that I’m completing on this Topic. The Subject (of course) being Copyright Infringement, Plagiarism, Conversion of Intellectual Property and Pirating in the 21ST Century as seen through the Eyes of a Creatif and how the Writer can and must protect her/himself. We’re no longer in Kansas, Toto.
THE CRACKDOWN BEGINS: I will be instigating & tracking a permanent Black List or D-List (as in D-amage Control) on my BLOG, Koopersmithin’ allowing other Writers/Authors to see who the Potential Predator is. Hypothetically, while looking for Work (whether it is a full, part-time or freelance position, the Writer must be protected from taking (even wasting his/her time interviewing for a Position (with a precarious Employer) in which he/she is not respected, acknowledged, credited and/or paid for his/her Efforts. That TinyURL is easily accessible at:
This Posting (on this Page) will be updated regularly as the Cases in Copyright Infringement are growing larger by the Month. It’s no longer PTC: Prime Time Celebs who are being exploited, it’s many others – many who do not even realize it. Being armed with the Knowledge on how to fight back is critical. Knowing WHO is taking Liberties against Literature where CONTENT IS KING is a vital Necessity.
