Well, looks like you found a way to offset your negative experience
(i.e. your missing agent) with something positive! Thanks for sharing
your notes with us.
Perhaps GNSI could join the American Illustrators Congress (right name?)
in supporting Bruce Lehman in his research forming a "collective
liscensing society" and in drawing up a legal plan. Or perhaps we could
have him, or another member of this group, attend the conference in
Portugal to present his research and sollicit support. The example of
the work done by photographers in protecting their interests has been
raised a number of times at GNSI conferences, so I know there are GNSI
members who are interested in this subject and might be wiling to
volunteer some time/money to help further this research and work.
Could you post address and phone/email for contact to this group.
Perhaps exploring the website you attached is the point for making
