On Friday afternoon, February 24, From 2:00 to 4:00 PM, the Program on
Intellectual Property and the Public Interest at the Washington College
of Law will present a timely program on "Orphan Works: New Prospects
for a Solution."
=20
The last few years have seen an increasingly recognition that the
problem of "orphan works" is a real impediment to the realization of the
constitutional goal of copyright law: the "Progress of Science and
useful Arts." When artists, historians, museums, libraries and others
forgo culturally significant uses of copyright works because their
ownership cannot be traced, the public loses. On January 23, after a
thorough and searching review, the United States Copyright Office
delivered an important report on this topic (with legislative
recommendations) to the chairs of the relevant congressional committees.
=20
The panel discussion on February 24 will consider the report, its
recommendations and the potential for early legislation. Joining in the
discussion will be representatives of many groups that have been active
in the "orphan works" debate, including: Prue Adler
<BLOCKED::http://www.arl.org/arl/staffbios/padler.html> (Association of
Research Libraries), Jonathan Band
<BLOCKED::http://www.policybandwidth.com/summary.html> (counsel to the
Library Copyright Alliance), Kathleen Franz
