Title
Orphan Works 4: Types of Works Subject to Any Orphan Works Legislation
Summary
As described in the Office's previous Notice and many of the responding comments, orphan works remain a pervasive issue in copyright law. While the issue cuts across all creative sectors, the unique challenges posed by photographs have long been an obstacle to developing an effective orphan works solution. Photographs and other works of visual art may lack or may more easily become divorced from ownership information, especially in the age of social media that has largely transpired since Congress considered the 2008 bills. This lack of identifying information often prevents users from locating or even initiating a search for orphaned photographs' rights holders. The 2008 bills included a number of provisions specifically aimed at resolving some of the issues specific to photographs. This panel discussed how to address the problems presented by certain types of works, including specifically photographic and visual arts orphan works. Speakers included Karyn Temple Claggett, Catherine Rowland, Robert Kasunik, Dan Cohen, Rachel Fertig, Alec French, Anne Collins Goodyear, David Hansen, Bruce Lehman, Maria D. Matthews, Alex McGehee, Eugene Mopsik, Barbara Natanson, Mickey Osterreicher, Kelly Rogers, Jay Rosenthal, Charles Sanders, Jeff Sedlik and Lisa Shaftel.
