Subject: En bra lösning på problemet med föräldralösa verk (orphan works)

Även utanför biblioteksvärlden förs debatter om upphovsrättsfrågorna. I
EU parlamentet
har piratpariets ledamot Christian Engström presenterat en lösning på
problemet med
dom föräldralösa verken som skulle gynna alla parter.

Han ser tre lösningar på problemet

There are essentially three possible solutions to the problem:

   1. Do nothing, and accept that most works that are younger than about
      150 years cannot be digitized,
   2. Introduce a statutory exception on the European level, to permit
      the use of orphan works, or
   3. Introduce a system based on collective licensing.

Och han förordar

For companies and individuals that hold the rights to commercially
valuable older works, it is a very small
burden to register the work and provide a public record of whom to
contact to negotiate for licenses. And
for the millions of works from the 20th century where the rights owners
no longer have an interest, at least
 not commercially, they will automatically become available for
digitization and other use as part of our
common cultural heritage.
In my mind, this would represent a true win-win solution that can be
implemented very easily and fairly
quickly by an EU initiative. This is an issue that needs to be resolved
to bring Europe into the information
age in a sensible way.


De åsikter som framförs här är mina personliga
och inte ett uttryck för Göteborgs universitets-
biblioteks hållning

Opinions expressed here are my own and not
those of the Gothenburg University Library
