New: Resource Packet on Orphan Works: Legal and Policy Issues for Research Libraries
From the Intro:
The resource packet on legal and policy issues concerning orphan works provides general information concerning orphan works, the University of Michigan’s Orphan Works Project, an FAQ, and a legal memorandum by Jonathan Band, policybandwidth, describing the legal issues associated with making orphan works digitally available. While not a comprehensive response or analysis of the suit, this packet should be useful in understanding some of the core issues in Authors Guild v. HathiTrust et al.
