      SUMMARY:

      The Copyright Office seeks to examine the issues raised by “orphan works,”
      i.e., copyrighted works whose owners are difficult or even impossible to
      locate. Concerns have been raised that the uncertainty surrounding ownership
      of such works might needlessly discourage subsequent creators and users from
      incorporating such works in new creative efforts or making such works
      available to the public. This notice requests written comments from all
      interested parties. Specifically, the Office is seeking comments on whether
      there are compelling concerns raised by orphan works that merit a
      legislative, regulatory or other solution, and what type of solution could
      effectively address these concerns without conflicting with the legitimate
      interests of authors and right holders. ....

      1. If by electronic mail: Send to orphanworks@... a message containing
      the name of the person making the submission, his or her title and
      organization (if the submission is on behalf of an organization), mailing
      address, telephone number, telefax number (if any) and e-mail address. The
      message should also identify the document clearly as either a comment or
      reply comment. The document itself must be sent as a MIME attachment, and
      must be in a single file in either: (1) Adobe Portable Document File (PDF)
      format (preferred); (2) Microsoft Word 2000 or earlier; (3) WordPerfect 8.0
      or earlier; (4) Rich Text File (RTF) format; or (5) ASCII text file format.
