Copyright or Copy Wrong? ‘Orphan Works’ at Issue

Anonymous Patron writes The Chicago Tribune reports: As more individuals, libraries and archives use new technology to digitize old documents or put them online–thereby “reproducing” them–they are running into legal problems because of difficulties finding the copyright holder.” The campaign to preserve Orphan Works was covered earlier.

And what about non-orphaned works? I’m waiting for Google Print to start removing its Fair Use snippets, just as Google Web and Google News have done when faced with a threat to shareholder value.
