OrphanWorks (and Duke Law)Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, General
James Boyle write to tell us all about Duke Law’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain and their part in the presentations to the Library of Congress on Orphan Works and Orphan Films
I wrote about the problems of orphan works earlier by posting a note from Larry Lessig about it.
Anyway, we put together a report for the copyright office on orphan films, and another on orphan works — For both of them we interviewed people around the country on their experiences.? Some amazing stories came out of that, and the orphan films research is tragic? At the end of the orphan works report, we offer a proposal to fix the problem.
The two Duke reports are in PDF, but have a good introduction to each of the two CSPD reports.
