Submission + - The author of SOPA is a copyright violator (vice.com)

TheNextCorner writes: "Lamar Smith is the author of the SOPA bill, a US congress member and supposedly an expert on copyright. The author of this article checked the website of Smith, and found some interesting facts!

I contacted DJ, to find out if Lamar had asked permission to use the image and he told me that he had no record of Lamar, or anyone from his organization, requesting permission to use it: "I switched my images from traditional copyright protection to be protected under the Creative Commons license a few years ago, which simply states that they can use my images as long as they attribute the image to me and do not use it for commercial purposes."
