Stop43.org.uk stopped Commercial Orphan Works Exploitation in the UK Digital Economy Bill Clause 43






The result:



Today, The Digital Economy Bill underwent its Committee Stage and Third Reading in the House of Commons. In the course of the debate,
Clause 43 was removed from the Bill.

The way is now open for photographers and other creatives to present
new thinking enabling the legitimate use of our genuine orphan works for strictly defined non-commercial “cultural” purposes in a way that will satisfy the needs of the cultural sector, to prevent the future orphaning of our work, and to redress defects in current copyright law.

Heartfelt thanks to all who have helped make this result possible.
