Orphan Artworks Bill

posted at 15:54 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

Lessig disses the Orphan Artworks Bill (PDF of bill) in the NYT today. The bill is currently making its way through the US Congress on a fast track. Here’s a summary of what’s in it. Ed Winkleman has a post about it as well.

I have to admit that I have no idea what to make of this proposal. But I outsource all my opinions regarding copyright to Lessig so I guess I’m against it.

More on this from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (they strongly support it). permanent link to this post
