Last night, I just attend a brief lecture on the the HR 5889 Orphan Works Act of 2008. I got just enough knowledge to make me dangerous. Now is it good or bad for artists? Well, I can not say for sure (probably not good is in the back of my mind) until I give it more of a read. Here is a link to read the legalise for yourself. You can also check out the Senate Bill S. 2913. Both bills can be tracked to see how far along they are in the process AND you can find your Congressmen and/or women here.
