Larry Lessig has signed his first online petition in many years (UPDATED)

Against the proposed Orphan Works Act. The petition is here if you want to join him.

UPDATE: I think it's safe to say Heather Hope will not be signing the petition: "I do not know all the ins-and-outs of the legislation, and maybe what is being proposed is not ideal. But maybe, instead of complaining that artists do not want any type of legislation, what needs to be done is compromise on how to solve the ever-growing problem of OWs, which prevent works from being published, performed, used, and exhibited."
