Heute twitterte Mathias Schindler von der Bundestags-Anhörung zu verwaisten Werken:
http://www.univie.ac.at/voeb/blog/?p=17156 berichtet über eine britische Studie:
The study conﬁrmed through analysis of a representative set of titles published within the 140 years between 1870 and 2010, that rights clearance of works on an individual, item by item basis is unworkable in the context of mass digitisation. Mass digitisation potentially involves the copying and making available of millions of copyright works. At 4 hours per book it would take one researcher over 1,000 years to clear the rights in just 500,000 books – a drop in the ocean when compared to the rich collections of Europe’s cultural institutions.
