UPDATE: Orphan Works Meeting


January 29, 2007

Twenty visual arts groups met in Washington Monday to discuss a unified orphan works strategy.

The interest groups included freelance artists and photographers, graphic designers, picture agencies and the estates of deceased fine artists.

Since we expect the Orphan Works bill to be resurrected soon, with strong congressional support at its back, the groups have agreed that we must work together to counter its negative provisions by supplying Congress with positive alternate suggestions to improve it.

No timetable has yet been announced for the bill’s introduction, but the groups will meet again shortly by conference call to discuss this details of this positive strategy.

—The Board of the Illustrators’ Partnership
