Hey everyone!  
Please take a moment out of your day to look at this.

Will Terry, has joined forces with Brad Holland to help us understand what this Copyright Law is all about, here is their message:

“Orphan Works in a Nutshell:

Congress is drafting a new US Copyright Act. If passed, it would replace current US Copyright law. There isn’t any bill yet, but the Copyright Office has issued its recommendations for one. Their Report is 234 pages long and is very complicated, so it’s risky to try reducing it to a few words. But here’s a summary of its basic features:

It would void your Constitutional right to the EXCLUSIVE CONTROL of YOUR work. 
It would effectively reverse the default premise of copyright law; which means…It would make the public’s right to use your work its defining goal; which means...
  • You would have to make your work available to the public.
  • You would have to do this by registering every picture you want to retain the rights to with for-profit registries.
  • Unregistered work would be considered legally “orphaned.”
  • Orphaned work would be available for commercial infringement by “good faith” infringers.
  • Good faith infringers would be anyone who believed they had made a “reasonably diligent,” but unsuccessful effort to find you.
  • Infringers could also ALTER your work and copyright the “derivative works” in their own names.
  • This would affect all visual art: drawings, paintings, sketches, photos, etc.; past, present and future; published and unpublished; domestic and foreign.
  • It would include family snapshots and any picture or work you ever put on the Internet.
  • The Copyright Office acknowledges that this would pose special “challenges” for visual artists…
  • But they conclude that it’s in the public interest for your work to be available for anyone to use.
  • The Copyright Office has also recommended the following:
  • Mass Digitization of the world’s intellectual property by corporate interests.
  • Extended Collective Licensing, a form of socialized corporate licensing that would replace voluntary agreements between artists and clients.
  • A Copyright Small Claims Court to handle the expected flood of orphan works lawsuits.
