Metadata Image Library Exploitation's Orphan Works Database

The EC-funded Metadata Image Library Exploitation project has established an Orphan Database for images.

An advanced search capability allows users to use a variety of criteria, such as creator of original work, location of original work, and photographer.

Here's a description from the database's home page:

MILE has set up an 'Orphan Database' which acts as a repository for all Orphan Works and invites you to offer information about these works. This database also serves to collate all search efforts for associated works of art so that Europe is provided with a centralised source for Orphan Works discussions, search history and potential repatriation.

  1. Come si può essere certi che si tratti sempre di opere orfane? Nel mio caso ho scoperto che molti libri di cui io sono l’unica proprietaria del Copyright stanno per essere immessi via Internet con questo nuovo sistema bibliotecario.Forse la richiesta di ciò è stata fatta all’editore che in passato ne aveva facoltà?Ora,come posso fare?
    Grazie per la risposta.
    Cordiali saluti
