Librarians At Odds With Makers Over Copyright Bill

Copyright laws are designed to protect creators from unfair use of their intellectual property. But some independent makers say it’s too expensive for them to get those protections. A bill currently working its way through Congress could fix that.

Review: "Ancient Caves" at the Science Museum of Minnesota's Omnitheater Sets a New Low (In a Good Way) - The Tangential

The reason for paleoclimatologist Gina Moseley’s descents, we learn in Ancient Caves, is to gather data about past changes in the earth’s climate. Specifically, in the stunning new film opening today at the Science Museum of Minnesota’s Omnitheater, she’s researching the question of how rapidly sea levels rose during past warming events. As narrator Bryan Cranston points out, this is not unrelated to the question of what we can expect in our planet’s very near future.

Copyright Enforcement in the Arts Gets Aid From New CASE Act | The Legal Intelligencer

Federal copyright litigation often carries a prohibitive price tag, with filing fees frequently amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. In light of the relatively low-annual earnings of most independent creative professionals, along with the minimal damages that most of them stand to gain from a successful lawsuit, these fees often present an insurmountable obstacle that effectively bar these copyright owners from asserting their rights against infringers—particularly those with deep pockets. In light of these financial burdens, the unfortunate fact remains that many smaller artists are forced to forego their most powerful form of legal recourse due to a simple shortage of funds. Many of the CASE Act’s provisions are designed to reduce the costs and complexity typically associated with federal litigation.

Supreme Court Wrestles With Consequences for Piracy by State Governments

In 2013, North Carolina's Department of Natural and Cultural Resources posted a few of Allen's images of the shipwreck on its website. North Carolina then came to a settlement agreement with Allen, paying him $15,000 for the infringements, but after taking the images down, the DNCR then posted five short videos and one photograph from the recovery expedition. Allen filed suit. Afterwards, North Carolina state lawmakers passed §121-25(b) — dubbed "Blackbeard's Law" — which treats all photographs, video recordings and other documentary materials of a derelict vessel or shipwreck or its contents as "public record."

Can states pirate works without paying? The potential grounds for abrogation of state sovereign immunity in copyright

Fredrick Allen is the sole photographer and videographer of the Queen Anne's Revenge shipwreck; the ship was captained by pirate, Blackbeard, and sunk off the coast of North Carolina in 1718. Allen found infringement on websites hosted and operated by the State of North Carolina in 2013; the state settled, promising to pay royalties and provide attribution on all future uses. The infringement continued however, leading to the current litigation. In 2015, the state further pressed the issue by enacting Blackbeard's Law; this law made “all photographs, video records, or other documentary materials of a derelict vessel or shipwreck, [and] relics, artifacts or historic materials in state custody" public records, exempted from copyright protection.

300 Years After Blackbeard, the Court Examines Another Kind of Piracy

The Court’s questioning and the posture of the plaintiff, however, suggest the impact of this case may be much more significant. Like the Queen Anne’s Revenge on the bottom of the Atlantic, the Article I issue has long remained unexamined. This may be the case that salvages it. That could signal fair winds and following seas ahead for patent owners.

A New Video Resource to Help Students Understand Copyright ~ CreativeFuture

Copyright is a creative right afforded to all Americans, a legal structure that helps creative people to be compensated for their work. Without it, there would be no marketplace for creativity – just creative people and their hobbies. Copyright infringement doesn’t just hurt big companies and their profits, it prevents creative individuals from making a living.

Aarrr, matey! Supreme Court justices frown on state's public display of pirate ship's salvage operation

The justices were called to referee a dispute between the state and a video production company that has spent two decades documenting the salvage of the Queen Anne's Revenge, which the legendary pirate Blackbeard ran aground in 1718. Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor said it was "deeply troubling" that after North Carolina was caught with copyrighted material and agreed to pay a fine, the state legislature enacted "Blackbeard's Law" to convert the salvage effort to public record.

With Friends Like Wyden … Creators Have a Problem - The Illusion of More

As a practical matter Senator Wyden’s singular opposition to CASE waves a dismissive hand at his own constituents—and millions of Americans outside Oregon—who rely on copyright in their small-businesses the same way Portland’s coffee bars need a steady supply of beans. The CASE Act may seem like a small matter in the scheme of things; but for the creative entrepreneur trying to keep her work from being ripped off in a market that innovates theft at a staggering pace, there is nothing small about it. Protecting copyrights can be the difference between healthcare and no healthcare or, at the very least, having the money to patronize one of Portland’s coffee bars.

Sen. Ron Wyden told Oregon creators he cares about the infringement of their works vis-a-vis the CASE Act then went back to DC and tried to kill the bill.

Our Story

Nautilus Productions has produced documentaries for National Geographic International, the Canadian History Channel, North Carolina Public Television, Texas A&M, the Louisiana State Museum and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (US Dept. of the Interior). Corporate clients include Office Depot and UBS among others. Our broad range of experience and decades of work guarantee a great production.

Rick Allen, co-founder of Nautilus Productions, broadcast video producer and cinematographer has been diving the oceans of the world and shooting video since 1983. As a video producer, director and videographer his work has appeared on ABC, A&E, BBC, CBS, Discovery, TLC, National Geographic, 48 Hours, ESPN, Lifetime, Turner and more. He has followed SWAT teams through the door on drug busts, traveled from Cuba to Kazakhstan with the 82nd Airborne, weathered live broadcasts during hurricanes, gone nose to nose with 14 foot Great White sharks during underwater expeditions and is the official project videographer on the Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge Shipwreck Project. After 12 years in broadcast television Allen opened his own video production company in 1997 focused on documentary production as well as providing freelance videography and underwater video services to broadcast clients. Allen is an avid wreck diver and shark lover who can be found most weekends diving the Graveyard of the Atlantic.

Cindy Burnham is a photojournalist with more than 3 decades of work covering the news, the people, and visual tempo of our age. She is the owner of Lucky Shot Productions, a freelance photography company and co-founder of Nautilus Productions, a video production company, as well as the former assignments editor and senior photographer at the Fayetteville Observer. Her images have appeared on covers and pages of Newsweek, New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Time Life books and more. Burnham is an avid underwater photographer. She spends her weekends during summers diving on WWII shipwrecks of North Carolina and swimming with Sand Tigers sharks.

Nautilus Productions is also the exclusive owner and licensor of footage from Blackbeard the Pirate's flagship - the Queen Anne's Revenge (QAR). Since the discovery of the wreck by Intersal Inc. the Nautilus Productions staff has been the official video crew for the study and recovery of the infamous pirate Blackbeard's ship the Queen Anne's Revenge (La Concorde). Our staff works with the North Carolina's Underwater Archaeology Branch documenting this incredible underwater find. Nautilus Productions' duties include the video documentation of activities on site, the archaeological survey and recovery of artifacts from the shipwreck and licensing the stock footage library. The Queen Anne's Revenge Shipwreck Project stock footage library contains nearly two decades of HD & SD footage from the project.

Allen is also known for QAR DiveLive 2000 & 2001. During QAR DiveLive real time underwater video of the project was streamed to the internet as a part of an educational program that reached thousands of children around the world. The project, proposed by Bill Lovin of Marine Grafics and Rick Allen of Nautilus Productions melded television technology, Internet streaming, and underwater archaeology. The live, internet broadcasts allowed students to talk to scientists, see video of the shipwreck and learn about methods and technologies utilized by underwater archaeologists in real time.

November 5, 2019: In what may be the most important copyright case in decades, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Allen v. Cooper. In 2015, according to a complaint filed in federal court, North Carolina pirated footage of Blackbeard's flagship, the 'Queen Anne's Revenge.' Then North Carolina passed "Blackbeard's Law" to justify that misuse. Rick Allen of Nautilus Productions has now taking his case to the Supreme Court of the United States. The issue is whether Congress validly abrogated state sovereign immunity via the Copyright Remedy Clarification Act in providing remedies for authors of original expression whose federal copyrights are infringed by states. North Carolina maintains that sovereign immunity prevents it from being held liable for damages, as other copyright infringers would be.

Allen has also been featured in numerous stories and on NPR's "The Story" - Blackbeard's Shipwreck and The Hook & Planet Money - Episode 955: Pirate Videos. Nautilus serves Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Fayetteville, Pinehurst, Wilmington, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Ft.
