ASMP Supports SAA Metadata Manifesto

The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) has announced its active support for the Stock Artists Alliance (SAA) and the SAA's recently published "Metadata Manifesto."

"Metadata is one of the keys to solving the current Orphan Works dilemma and is essential for the future of rights-managed photography," said Eugene Mopsik, ASMP executive director. "As
the Manifesto states, 'Without effective systems in place for identifying and managing digital assets, everyone working with digital images is adversely affected. Resources are wasted,
opportunities are lost, liability increases and intellectual property rights are eroded.' ASMP greatly appreciates this SAA effort made on behalf of all photographers."
