Orphaned Works Act

I am supplanting the weekly tutorial to help get the word out about this impending legislation. It basically allows for the taking of any work “where the creator cannot be found” but has no definition of what due diligence is needed, making it legal for anyone to basically abscond with anything.

All you need is your zip code. As this is an election year – we actually may be listened to for a change! Stop over today and let them know your thoughts:
