Title
Orphan Works 1: The Need for Legislation in Light of Recent Legal & Technological Developments
Summary
The U.S. Copyright Office is reviewing the problem of orphan works under U.S. copyright law in continuation of its previous work on the subject and to advise Congress on possible next steps for the United States. The Office has long shared the concern with many in the copyright community that the uncertainty surrounding the ownership status of orphan works does not serve the objectives of the copyright system. For good faith users, orphan works are a frustration, a liability risk, and a major cause of gridlock in the digital marketplace. The issue is not contained to the United States. Indeed, a number of foreign governments have recently adopted or proposed solutions. Speakers during session one included Karyn Temple Claggett, Catherine Rowland, Allan Adler, Jonathan Band, June Besek, Kyle K. Courtney, Emily Feltren, David Hansen, James Hare, Ann F. Hoffman, Brad Holland, Jamie Love, Jim Mahoney, Janice T. Pilch, Jay Rosenthal, Matthew Schruers and Salley Shannon.
