It provides a series of legislative recommendations that offer users a way forward out of gridlock, but also take into account the legitimate concerns and exclusive rights of authors and.

    The following presenter, Peter Decherney, who is currently writing a book on Hollywood and copyright law, explained other exemptions made by the copyright office.

      We commend the Office for endorsing that the orphan work solution should apply to all types of works, all types of uses, and all types of users.
