Denise Troll Covey has self-archived "Response to Library of Congress NOI on Orphan Works and Mass Digitization" in SelectedWorks.
Here's an excerpt:
Responding on behalf of Carnegie Mellon University, we appreciate the commitment of Congress and the U.S. Copyright Office to solving the orphan works problem and the opportunity to address the issues articulated in the Notice of Inquiry. As noted in the 2006 Report on Orphan Works, the orphan works problem is significant, pervasive, and thwarting the purpose of copyright.
Carnegie Mellon's response addresses the primary questions posed in the Notice of Inquiry. The discussion proceeds as follows:
- Current state of play for solving the orphan works problem
- Principles that should shape the solution
- Proposal for a two-pronged solution that might be palatable at this time
