Lost and Found: A Practical Look at Orphan Works
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Meeting Hall, New York City Bar Association, 42 West 44th Street
How should the law treat “orphan works”? Please join us as we discuss proposals that would enable copyrighted works to be used when their owners cannot be located to obtain necessary permissions. What should be the obligations of potential users with respect to searching for copyright owners? How should infringement claims be handled if a copyright owner emerges? Do different types of copyrighted works present unique issues? What roles might registries and
recognition and detection technologies play? Our speakers will address these and related questions, focusing on orphan images.
