The Problem of "Orphan" Works and Copyright Law

Excellent article on Groklaw. I've been wondering about this issue as I have a growing collection of magazines that are no longer published and lack locatable owners, but barely fall within the Copyright law changes made by The Disney Protection Act aka Sonny Bono Copyright Act.

Sonny Bono ended up dyimg for his sins. To bad he did not die before screwing up the copyright laws. The fate of James Joyces Ulysses and the estate/corporaition that own his works are still living on the gravey train. With Ulysses we get the added problem of when was it published. 1922 world wide. But, held up for legal issues in the US for years and not copywrited in the US. Ohh well.
