    Well, good. Giving this sort of sweeping copyright for whatever the company says is "orphaned" to that company is a spectacularly bad idea.

    Guild Files Notice of Appeal in Dismissal of Defamation Lawsuit


    On April 26, the Guild filed a notice of appeal in the dismissal of the defamation lawsuit filed in the Fall of 2008. The Guild strongly disagrees with the judge's ruling in this case. For clarification purposes, the lawsuit is a defamation lawsuit regarding statements made by the defendants named in the lawsuit. It has no connection to the Orphan Works bill of 2008, or the Google class action lawsuit. Our statement on the notice of appeal can be downloaded here. An informational article on reprographic royalties can be read in our archived news.
