Due to the actions of activist judges on behalf of billionaires making it legal to infringe the copyrights of small-time creators who can't afford costly copyright registration for each work, I will be removing my short fiction from the Internet as of today.
As it stands protections were already weak. My short story "Decontamination Day" was posted in 2010 and several years later someone made a movie that was very similar; I could do nothing about that. Now imagine if they could simply take one of my stories wholesale?
Corporations troll sites like DeviantArt all the time for work by small creators they can hijack and it will only get worse as the rapaciousness of the capitalist classes becomes more naked. If you want my work I will consider making it available as an anthology but only if I can raise enough to register a copyright. I apologize for this but this is the pressure being placed on small-time creators.
This is why the Working Classes need to stand up and shut down the blight that is capitalism before it consumes everything we hold dear. The bandits have reached my doorstep with this and I'm considering what that means for me and my future. For my part, I am prepared to make any sacrifices to help bring the new era to life.
