She has not updated THAT OLD POST and it is doing a LOT of damage.
BRAD HOLLAND replies to Radio Free Meredith's - Six Misconceptions About Orphaned Works
I read a column by a woman (forgot the name unfortunately) that supposedly debunks the entirety of the Orphan Works fears.
You may be referring to “Six Misconceptions About Orphan Works,” which was written before these bills came out and which we responded to at the time. Our response is archived here:
Her “column” argued that there were no orphan works bills in the works (the bills came out a few days later, as we had predicted) and she tried to “debunk” our warnings by citing current copyright law, which, of course, these bills are intended to change. It was not a well-informed article.
Thank you for following this issue and for writing to congress. Unfortunately things are moving fast there, and it’s going to take a real effort to stop them. We may be asking everyone to write again soon – this time to support an amendment limiting the application of orphan works law to orphan works.
