Orphan Works

February 24

2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Copyright Office is examining issues raised by “orphan works”, i.e. copyrighted works whose owners are difficult or even impossible to locate. Concerns have been raised that the uncertainty surrounding ownership of such works might needlessly discourage subsequent creators and users from incorporating such works in new creative efforts, or from making such works available to the public. The program will be followed by a reception.
