Okay, so I'm sure you've heard about the Orphan Works Bill.
Appearently though, I've been finding and reading the freaked out articles.
Actually, It's an old bill that hasn't been passed yet.
But it's rumored to be dug up again, to help the government get more money by making artists pay for copyrights. Sorta what they were/are planning to do with HD TVs..
The chance of it being passed are slim. Though, it keeps being revised and debated over. Still a threat in some ways it's also has it's goods, so I've heard.
"Quite simply an "Orphan Work" is a term used to describe a creative work whose author who cannot be identified and located by somebody who wishes to use the work for some purpose." "Basically, it's about ability to Google artworks, take them and sell them, if you "can't find an owner"."
Or abandoned work that's wanted for use and stuff.

Just wanna cover all bases. I'm more afraid of loopholes for art theives more than anything..
