Orphan Works

ORPHAN WORKS -- copyrighted literature and art whose owners
cannot be identified -- have led to an array of problems in

the filming of documentaries. Tomorrow and Wednesday, the
U.S. Copyright Office is holding a series of hearings to
determine whether copyright law should change to allow for
more liberal use of orphan works. Scholars and artists are at
odds over proposed changes.
