A letter which has appeared on Stop43.org.uk could mean photographers have something to worry about once again.

The note, which they say is dated 8th April 2010 from Stephen Timms, then Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills; Financial Secretary, HM Treasury and written to Frank Dobson MP says: "PS. Clause 43 was dropped from the Bill yesterday. Following further reflection, the Government will aim to reintroduce measures along similar lines when an opportunity arises in the new Parliament."

The news comes after so many photographers fought for Clause 43 to be removed from the Digital Economy Bill which would have allowed orphan works - photographs and artwork whose owners cannot be found – to be used without permission.
