Propuesta de Directiva sobre las obras huerfanas
Gracias al Instituto Autor, Aurelius se ha enterado que desde el 4 de mayo va rondando por ahí una Proposal for a Directive on certain permitted uses of orphan works. Según explica la Comisión: "Its aim is to establishing common rules on the digitisation and online display of so-called orphan works. Orphan works are works like books, newspaper and magazine articles, and films that are still protected by copyright but whose authors are not known or cannot be located or contacted to obtain copyright permissions. Orphan works are part of the collections held by European libraries that might remain untouched if no common rules are developed to make their digitisation and online display legally possible. Common rules on how to deal with such works are therefore necessary in order to proceed with large-scale digitisation projects, such as the Commission’s Europeana portal".
