Another Side of Orphan Works, please

Ellen Million breaks down U.S. Copyright Law and traces the history of the Orphan Works bill (with handy link citations) to help clear up some misperceptions on existing copyright law and the new proposal.

Found via this BoingBoing entry about an article by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (who support the Orphan Works legislation) in a comment by Nelson Pavlosky. How’s that for a citation?

    Every time I read an article that describes the benefits of the Orphan Works legislation, what they describe already exists–it’s called *Fair Use*. Librarians and documentary filmmakers have nothing stopping them from the legitimate fair use of a copyrighted work.

    In fact, Orphan Works would make it HARDER for librarians–where now, they can simply use a work under fair use, under Orphan Works they would have to document their “reasonable search”. I ask you, how is that a benefit?

    Here’s a good article on the topic:
