This just in from Al Nickerson, an active cartoonist and comics pro who in 2005 sponsored the first venue for discussion of the Creator Bill of Rights in over a decade. Al and his associates (Brandon Carr & Chuck Morrison) are elevating the discussion to a whole new level as of today, and I urge you all -- particularly those of you with a stake in this via your own work in various fields, from cartoonists to journalists, from poets to novelists -- to take part.
"On March 6, 2006, in honor of Will Eisner’s birthday, Brandon Carr, Chuck Morrison and myself will launch The Creator’s Rights Forum.
This is the place where anyone and everyone can join in the talks on The Creator’s Bill of Rights and creator's rights in general.
Creator’s rights is a topic that is very dear to many of us. For only continued discussions on this subject further much needed change for comic book artists and creators. So, please feel free to speak up, speak loudly, and speak often."

See you there!
