Lawrence Lessig's NYTimes Op-Ed on Orphan Works

Lawrence Lessig, Stanford University Law Professor and author of the Creative Commons License, has an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times opposing the Orphan Works bills currently before Congress. The piece, called "Little Orphan Artworks", is well worth reading. He discusses why the Orphan Works bills currently before Congress should be stopped and what alternatives might satisfy the needs they are trying to address.
