Lösungen für verwaiste Werke: untauglich

“The costs and challenges of rights clearance activity are a significant barrier to the digitisation of cultural heritage collections. Existing literature evidences this reality, and our research – the first major UK study concerning the concept of diligent search since the introduction of the Directive and OWLS – confirms that diligent search and mass digitisation are fundamentally incompatible, however light-touch the nature of the diligent search obligation. With respect to the 16 scrapbooks created by Edwin Morgan, we estimate that it would take one researcher over 8 years to undertake the diligent search activity alone, at a cost of more than £185,000. And of course, this would not guarantee that the scrapbooks could be made available in their entirety. Known and locatable rightholders might make permission contingent on the payment of unaffordable licence fees, or might simply withhold permission on other grounds. No cultural heritage institution, however well-resourced, would ever take on such a speculative and costly venture.”
