Digital Economy Bill: what you need to know

The Guardian has a useful summary of the entire Bill. Of orphan works, the article says: "Orphan works" are copyrighted works whose owner is unknown; this would create a means to license them. The extension of copyright/performers' rights proved controversial in the Lords. Status: Orphan works may survive the wash-up; copyright extension is less clear.
