Your new policy will damage educational institutions such as the one I
am at that do not have the funds to pay per picture when pictures and
movies are how we get out message across.  We are here to educate
children about he environment and marine life and children learn best
from pictures and eye catching demonstrations, and since we can not
reach all children most love our web site so that they may learn and
find out about what we do.

If you new policy is passed you will hinder the spread of educational
facilities such as ours.  The internet has been a great thing for many
who do not have the funds to travel to certain places and now you will
be moving them back 10 years.  You will make the internet a corporate,
big money only club which is down right evil and totalitarian.  This
policy should be banished never to be thought of again!!!!!
Thank you for you time
