Unlocking the Archive Through 108(h)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Copyright law contains a hidden tool that film archives don't currently use: 17 U.S.C. 108(h), which allows libraries and archives substantial rights to provide access to “commercial orphan” works in their last 20 years of copyright. The panelists will discuss the law and how it potentially applies to film archives, including a project at the Library of Congress National Audio Visual Conservation Center to research 108(h)'s potential application to films in its collections.
